    That's a great looking dummy. Much better than mine.

    I would recommend a dark stain; it doesn't show many marks and it's easy to touch up.

    Great job!

    As long as you don't get splinters and it's not exposed to the elements you may not need to finish it. Ask the carpenter that made the arms for you I'm sure he will have reams of information about good finishes for your local environment.

    Looks nice :)
    Don't forget to pad it.
    How come the leg isn't round ?

    the leg was square in the plans that I have.

    Didn't realize that I would have to pad it either. Smashed my knukle on good yesterday. :)

    Padding is a good idea, you will hit harder when you are NOT concerned about breaking something.

    Any recommendation? I've seen those canvas bags and I've also seen the foam. I'm leaning towards the canvas to toughen up my knuckles.

    Whatever is you prefer, doesn't really matter, but if you want to "toughen" also, canvas would better.
    How springy is the base?

    the base is not as springy as some that I've seen on videos but it moves about 2 to 2.5 inches when I push on it.
