hey Bron! thanks man...
fine details are a pain LOL. but i guess stepping back and looking is all worth it in the end.

im on the last leg of this journey!!!

just a few small parts to do and i will be done.. the connon itself is completed as of NOW! YAY :::does a jig:::

just finished the bucket, and working on all the sticks with the gizmos on em to complete the set.

im sorry for such big pictures folks. ( i hope most of us have broadband??) its just i cant show the detail without em as well..

here is some pics of the cannon at this point. soon as i get done, a few more pics. then it gets wraped up and given to my boss as a gift. who is a MAJOR civil war buff.. i hope he enjoys it.

That looks sweet BH , I ran a lathe similar to that about 25 yeas ago when I was an optician. Nice job on the clean up. If only I had one of those…. They come in handy more than you would think.

We have a cannon similar to that over here. God, it is so old. I remember it form when I was in grad school.. Ok , I’ll haft to find it and post it. I hope it’s that easy. I haven’t seen it in a few years, heh.
