WOW Tikimecula, just wow. Little more flash on those images will help us see the detail. The camera automatically adjusts to the light in the background. You have to override that.
You are a true artisan.

T-Mec, you are getting your dimension lines So Perfectly Fair, it's Unbelievable. Excellent stuff and getting better with every piece when it doesn't seem like it COULD even Be better.
Drool!

I got to see these last Sunday (when I could see again). Andy's work could not be more precise & clean. I'd love to spend some time learning these techniques.

Your attention to detail is immaculate, Andy. Extremely cool and professional work.

Damn it!

Wow, I Love how you kept the Bottoming so perfectly true throughout the whole piece. It must be very difficult to keep it the same depth and width through out. Looks like you have been doing this all your life.

Woah! And people think MY job is intricate/fiddly!? You must have amazing patience; your skill is evident. I agree with BenZart; its very impressive how you've achieved such even depth across the patterning. Great stuff.

I'm going to have to reread your postings, but that club looks like you did it on a water-jet machine. Or like you had a tool that was exactly a triangle punch. Fantastic job.

Your detail is amazing. It looks laser etched.
