A closer look. A pretty good canvas to work with. In fact you might question why do anything with such well-aged deadwood, though I suspect the aforementioned sitting water is part of the reason.
Getting started. Looks like a Dremel. A very handy tool to have.
Making good progress.
I think this is about as far as Will goes. At least for now.
A bit of whimsy.
A closer look. A lot of expression with a few deft touches.
Will himself, dremeling.
