I got started on mine this morning, here it is marked up

post-32944-0-84439700-1352561545_thumb.jpg

and here it is after working on it on and off for 6 hours.

post-32944-0-59234400-1352561586_thumb.jpg

now the 6 hours was interspersed with me removing the tiles from our utility room and replacing the work-surface, so I reckon this is 2 hours of work to get it like this.

 

Lots of scratches still on the blade from the early material removal so I guess it's just a case of more elbow grease and sandpaper until I get the finish I like.

 

Main problem with the sanding is that it has removed the sharp edges I had on the blade - not the finish I had intended but I actually quite like it now.

Yes Paulus, please do - better chance of winning then ;) in all seriousness the photo probably makes it look better than it is. Its strange also that you can start working on it and then all of a sudden it looks crap, 5 minutes more work and it looks good. it kind of wavers between the two. I guess the trick is to stop when it looks good.
