More than half the day gone and no pic to be seen. Well, somebody has to start.

This bug (Hairy Shieldbug) is on, and so presumably eating, the rare plant (Balm-leaved Figwort) I located three days ago, it might need relocating to dine on something else.

I need more coffee. I thought you were saying the the bug's name was Harry Shieldbug. :oops: Lovely details and textures.

This diptych shows the progression from yesterday's image. The first frame shows what the headstock looked like first thing this morning, and the second shows after the epoxy & dust mix was shaved and sanded flush, then sealed with a coat of Tru-Oil. I'll add a couple more thin coats over the next couple of days to seal it well.
