Here's a quick update on my progress from the last few days. I am in the burning phase. I plan to tackle all the miscellaneous pieces first, and the actual wheel last. So far it looks a bit as if I am creating a 3-D coloring book. Burning complex patterns on wood with corners and curved bits is prooving to be challenging. Especially if you are also fending off feline intervention. It's a good thing I'm not a perfectionist! Any wobbly lines or jagged elements will just add to the charm (that's my story and I'm sticking to it).
