What’s on Ethan’s Table This Week?

GAH! I’m sorry, this is more like “What HAS BEEN on Ethan’s Table This Week?” I’ve been running back an forth to appointments in between chugging away in the workshop. On top of that, I’m painting my living room. I’ll post pics when it’s done, promise. You’ll cringe at the absolutely hideous wallpaper that was there before. Well uh … I hope the landlord likes bright red! Lalalaaaa …

Okay, here’s what I’ve gotten done so far on the three longswords:

Ouriel, Gabriel, and Azrael all have their light slots cut. I’ve gotten a stock of smaller, but just as powerful, LEDs so I can now make much smaller recesses in the handles. I like this because the less material I remove from the hilt, the stronger the sword will be.

Azrael has been polished up to 1000 grit and the polishing should be completed today. Ouriel and Gabriel still await polishing but I have an apprentice coming in to help me on the weekends now so it shouldn’t be as time-consuming as usual. 🙂 Woohoo!

Now back to the workshop with me! Stay awesome everybody.
