Since the last post I have been quietly working away on the Mahogany Dormouse Netsuke.

It has taken a lot more thinking time than I expected even though this is now the second attempt at this design. The more I’ve worked on this Mahogany Dormouse the more I can see the faults on the earlier Poplar Dormouse.

Just thought I’d share this progress shot with you, I’ll have some pictures of the finished Netsuke later today.

Oh and if you can think of a name for this piece all suggestions are welcome in the comments.

Until later then.
