Varnishing the stand

An end to sanding Zaphod's stand!

This is the stand, with four coats of French polish. I like the rich toffee colour.

You can see the stencil has been left unsanded. I now have to strip and paint the swing irons and brackets, then hurrah! it's on to the fun bit, gesso and paint for the horse.

Some of my horses...

Reading to rocking horses...

I took this photo (dashing to arrange myself in the ten seconds you get) for publicity purposes. I've entered my novel Trav Zander in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest, and entrants are able to load a profile.

A sneaky way to have more than one photo in your profile is to post a photo on a book for sale on Amazon.

This is it; me reading Patricia Mullins' The Rocking Horse.
