The little 348 looks like its ready to pounce at any time ambushing something or someone from its little hideaway. Big Smile

More pictures. I believe this is now complete, but I could be wrong. I reserve the right to make changes and update this anytime before the contest closes. I will be doing a video displaying the functioning light but that has to wait until some evening when I can have a little darkness.

Thank you so much!

In case I did not mention this before, the front end is osage orange, as is the other lighter colored band near the tail. The striped tailend piece is bocote and everything else is bloodwood. No stains or dyes were used. The wood was sprayed with three coats of satin finish clear lacquer after being sanded with 400 grit sandpaper.

I am not a great video producer. But, I made two attempts tonight. Part of my trouble is that I only have the camera in my phone and the auto levels feature of that tries to even out the rise and fall of the crescendo firmware.

The second video includes having the light I made in the view.
