This stuff is tough. I found that the snap in microplabe blades aren’t as sharp as the others. I could have just had bad luck but the hacksaw rasp blade is just a beast. Removes so much stock so neatly it only takes a few seconds with some 80 grit to make it super smooth.
Here’s the progress and the final product with mineral spirits. The final product isn’t quite as orange, but it’s pretty complex.
Tomorrow I’ll carve the lip and final sand the sides and hips.
