These nattys are like potato chips...Can't stop after the first one!

Started on my third natty. Wanted to see how far I could get using just a pocket knife. Had to use a rasp on the big knot and a rat tail file to start working on the knot at the bottom of the forks, but other than that it's been knife only and it's surprisingly close to finished. It's a bit further along now. I'm a night owl so hoping to get it done tonight!

Sometimes I leave the knots to see if I get an ergo grip. That looked like it might have been in the right spot for one. But looking really good can't wait to see it banded up.

That knot still had a fair bit of the broken branch still attached. I took it down to what you see but left it prominent. My middle finger fits nicely in the groove it makes between it and the forks. Waiting for the finish to dry so I can get some pics posted.

All done! I like how this one turned out. Pics don't do it justice. I used oak stain tinted poly as first coat and then amber shellac. Has a deep honey color and nice gloss. I think this is my favorite finish so far. I'll probably throw another coat on tonight. Thanks for looking!
