I can always tell your work. Your cuts are so precise and then time you give your items are amazing. You must be a very patient person!

Thanks for the response Randy and yes I did mean the cutting you do. I knew you used small scroll saw blades from a previous posting of yours but I wasn't sure how you used them. I bought some small blades but have been using them by hand. How do you like the Proxxon saw?

You made my day, Randy! It's something I never expected and you certainly never had to do, but you really made my day. It's absolutely beautiful! And I really thank you! Love the inlace and the enameled looking finish. It's just perfect.

Thank's Randy, I was afraid that my comment was a little to sarcastic for the audience. It can be a blessing in disguise can't it. Love your work. Kate
