    In my last post, I had completed making the burlap micarta and needed some more epoxy to make the core. Since epoxy is an "essential" item I decided to mask up and head to the craft store. In the first photo you can see all the pieces routed to my mini-mule pattern. (the lighting here is terrible}

    Next I glued them together with some epoxy.

    Cleaned up and ready for pins.

    Edges all routed.

    Some final touches include a matching bag and bead.

    I think the mess was worth it...:)

      Thanks for all the kind words everyone! I would like to put some white bands and possibly a white pouch on it. Does anyone know where I could find white latex for bands or a white band set? It doesn't need to be the top of the line in performance but if it was, then that would be ok too. :)
