Not, yet.

But that could happen too! Pumice works well I'm told.

It's more about handwork. Soon I may be using some machinery for convenience sake, while still keeping my premium projects as hand done pieces.r
Thanks for your interest.

You use the drawknife both backwards and upside down?

Or is this just a posed "in action" shot?

I have asked Al to come by and visit and he has respectfully declined.

Yet, if he was willing I would would certainly be as well!
