Finally, with spots, this giraffe looks like a giraffe. Here are some pictures of how she looks today. I am planning to finish painting the inside of her ears and a few other details in the next few days. Then next week, after putting some additional supporting material in her area of the wall, I will gather some friends and put her up. I am also installing the dog, Oberon, the same time.

Then, with my shop space free I will be working on an upgrade to a wooden ring which holds some important metal bearings on the carousel mechanism. This will take a few days and then, with new basswood which I have yet to purchase, I will start on the next animal, a pelican, which will look like he is busting through the portal to land inside the carousel house.

But first of course, I will post a few photos of the giraffe and dog once installed.

I have turned this photo sideways so you can get a better impression of how she will look when attached to the wall.
