Carved wooden chain: finished

Here is the finished carved wooden chain.

It didn’t take much more work to clean off the links.

The biggest job as always was the sanding, working through 80 grit, down to 320, to achieve a really smooth finish.

You can’t see it very well here, but there is some interesting spalting in the beech, which runs through the first links, giving it a mottled effect.

The finish is our own beeswax polish.

My next project is a tray to take some tiles we bought in South Africa. But for now the garden calls. There are seeds to plant and a new hedge to lay.
