Looking good...my only critique is the wood color. Generally, they're a brownish color. Might be the light?
Its is brown, but with a reddish tone. One of the stains was red chestnut. I've still tweaking that part so I'll try to tone down the red

Looking good...my only critique is that we still see the wood grain in the harpoon. Maybe a replacement later?
Yeh, no matter how much paint you use, the grain still shows through! Normally I would use PVC plastic for something like that, but I had no plastic dowels to attach it to, and wood doesn't adhere to PVC well. Once it becomes a display, and not being jostled around, I'll replace that
