Less than what I paid....which was 7$ on ebay :-))  and his #$# hat is glued to his head! On the plus side, he came with a rifle,  just in case there is a duck in the way....

The deck looked too new for the boiler/engine. So....scraped and sanded and re-stained with more natural base and honey (and less red) for grain contrast....few more coats of poly to go.

semi-gloss....  Almost done...and ready for the pond


2 thin coats 50/50 semi gloss and mineral spirits followed by 600 grit, one coat undiluted semi gloss, no sanding.
