Lincoln Finished

Abe is completed and I'm pretty happy with the results. Carved from two inch basswood, the finish is a 50/50 mixture of boiled linseed oil and mineral spirits. I then applied three light coats of Deft Satin and a coat of Howard's Feed-N-Wax. Mounted on a cherry base, he measures 11 1/2" tall including the base. He's going to the Kansas City Show next month.

Still a long way to go, but he is starting to look like Abe.
