"Randy, you are amazing.  Such stunning precision in your carving, colors, design.  Beautiful!  Do you use Inlace on the blue design?  I see the variation like real turquois."

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?

Wow, your work is awesome.  Do you teach?

Beautifully done.

Hello, way over there.  Are you, OK?

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

I have friends who do the pine coiling... will ask about books!  "Green drying gourds in water... "  Under the water?  Full of water?  Water with Clorox?  bp
