In times like these I'm thinking of a be
Summer is winding down but it will be another hot and muggy Maryland day. Will be in the Workshop all day, up to my elbows in paint, with the air blasting. Working on lots of goodies for our upcoming fall shows. #summerdays#maryland#cwsigns#inthew

А small series of work in progress on a project.
Here the parts are dyed in base color and cut. As you can see there are card pockets and a closure strap.
Perhaps this does not look exciting right now, but the aim is to get us through the process fro

A reszelésnek egy olyan alap készségnek kell lennie az ötvösöknél, mint szakácsoknál a kés használata. Az ötvös mesteremnél, amikor kezdtem több mint 20 évvel ezelőtt a szakmát, csak reszelnem volt szabad először. Azt mondta, hogy nem nyúlhatsz érté
