so I was passing my favourite sawmill on the way home today and I popped in to see what was in the hardwood offcuts bin. I picked up a nondescript dirty brown piece of plank for 50p, on the off chance it was something magical. I cut off a bit and quickly sanded/polished (hence some sawmarks still visible) it, and it did this.
It doesn't come off very well in the photo, but it's a really shiny coppery-gold colour, flecked with these dark marks, it's absolutely stunnning.
Anyone got any ideas what it might be?
It took an hour and a half and involved four brushes, two combs, leave-in shampoo, one pair of scissors, one tick tool (YUCK!), saline, cleaning wipes, a pair of rubber gloves, grooming spray and leave-in conditioner.
Henry for scale. I had to hoover the whole room and myself and there's still fur everywhere.
I do love a good groom. I'd say this was about an 80% complete 'do', I even trimmed his feets and everything.

..about the possibly excessive tidiness of my shed. I hope these photos set your minds at rest. the workbench on the right is new, which is why it isn't covered in stuff.

you can tell, because there's a freshly sharpened pencil velcro'd above my workbench. seems like a good idea - the velcro also stops it rolling - wonder how long it will last.

warm and fluffy but does leave one somewhat covered in fur.
