I’ve given the woodwork on the wheel a coat of oil now, but I’m dissatisfied with the layer of dirt still on the base. This picture shows the original design on the spinning wheel. I’ll try to sand down the dirt, which means I’ll have to repaint it. I think I’ll replicate the rough design, but alter it more to my style. For one, that off red color always makes me think of that foam they spray on airplanes to make sure there’s no frost on it, on winter flights!
