Bacon & Eggs

Early Jan. 2010

Time to carve: 2 hours
Finishing: 2 hours

There is something about this slide (mmmmmm....Bacon)
that I truly love. Carved from pine,  it took a couple of tries to get the eggs and bacon right as I began to cut away the wood from the pan. One slip and you didn't have enough wood to form the things in the pan. Once I had the pan all carved out the egg yoke took form and on a lower level the egg white and bacon. All that while still trying to keep from nicking the top layer or edge of the pan. (Yikes!) Lots of sanding on this one too! A steady hand was required in painting the detail because there is not much room between the sides of the pan, eggs, and bacon. I used craft paints and a couple of coats of poly to finish it off.
