Fabulous work as always.

I will be making a tube shortly but it certainly will not reach this standard,but like you it is the process of a project I enjoy and hopefully a useable piece of tackle at the end..

Thank you for sharing.

Finished the float tube, it was not easy to get the epoxy in a round shape like the tube but after a lot off sanding and bring on new layers to get it right and the way i wanted
Enjoy the pictures, i can look at it whole day :-)

Lovely Evert. :Hat:
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.
