    So I call this pretty much done ... tracked 98 hours. Sorry I haven't posted in here for a while, but wedding and a relocation kept me bussy. It's finished with Danish Oil.

    I learnt a lot when building this. It has been quite a journey and I wish I could have more time in the shop. There are a few details I'll do different the next time - This really was some sort of prototype to expand my horizons.

    Thanks for watching and happy building! :)

    Turned out amazing! I really like the finish, and especially the small radius on the edges! Also, I like the fact that the coverplate follows the contouer of the body :) Great build, congrats!
