Padded Board Finish

My sister-in-law and I took another finishing class yesterday - the padded board finish. The steps are similar to Karen's instructions for finishing a pinkeep, although we glued everything! I thought our finishes turned out quite good - don't you?

Blogger ate my comment yesterday, so I gave up ... here goes again ... just want to say both finishes look great - I especially love the circular one, that style really suits the ornie :D
