    That is impressive! Please post another photo when you get the clear coat on. What is your intent? Will you glue the pieces onto a thin backing so that you can hang it?

    30 hours or so it’s tough because i have several projects going so I bounced around a lot but I will say 150 pieces or so at 3-5 minutes a piece to cut, then each piece is shaped with 80 grit at 2-3 minutes then sanded with 120 220 and 320 at 2-3 minutes each grit.
