"laochra aingeal"
#11
  
I have been wanting to make a piece that reflects my heritage " Celtic" I'm Scottish, Irish, Welch and English. I started this piece back in December it's 90% hand carved after turning the main body on the lathe. I'm calling this one "laochra aingeal" (angel warriors) 
11" W x 12" T Sapele & Sterling Silver. I did take some help from a Dremel on this piece grinding away some large bits w/ a 60 grit drum sander, the rest I carved w/ the same tools I used on my other pieces and I got two new sets of carving tools for Christmas. Also for Christmas I got a new camera and some lighting I'm still learning how to use the equipment. C&C always welcome.

You beat me to making one like that.  My Granddaughter and I drew up something like that on paper - the gargole with sward two years ago and now it makes me want to get to it right away.  Well after two other projects that have been waiting for a year anyway for someone else.

Well done.

I am also part Welch and only a small part.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

The one we drew did NOT have those beautiful legs on them.  For the legs and ball feet did you fit them to the bowl by placing sandpaper in the bowl and while spinning up the legs up to them so they form a perfect match?  Or did you do it differently?  How did you learn to do the flaw feet?
