I’d love to know how you crank out masterpieces so quickly. Amazing stuff as usual. Did you let the grain make the pages on that book, or somehow scrape in those striations? It looks real! Great stuff, and thanks for helping to end cancer while you’re at it :)

Nice work on the book and accessories Jordan – if I ever makes it to the Canadian wilderness, you must show me some of how you do what you do – it’s incredible -much aloha bro.

Jordan, what a great little still life. Did you carve the matches in the matchbox, or do them separately and glue them in? It all looks very real. And nice celtic knot! Glad to hear your wife is doing all right with cancer treatments. Enjoy Calgary.. it’s a fine city.

I´m sitting here in front of my screenwatching this still life picture for the maybee ten-twelf´d time since youposted itall of you work has been impressive,but this time I most confess I thoughtyou had cheated, yes I know shame on me.all day this little voice telling me “he did ,he did ,he did” for the last two hours I have watch the still,drinking lots and lots of coffee and telling the voicehe did not, he did not , he did not cheatthat is not the way Jordan speak/workwith his hands.and I was right you didn´t cheat but you foolled meat first I cuoldn´t see what nagging me and thenwhen I saw it, I thought it was real cloth on the back of the book and I cuoldn´t believe it.thats why I have used all my free space of time todayto look at this picture ,drinking coffee and have the argument with the little voice over you,and now I laugh all over my face becourse you won.that book fooled me and somehow (it may bee soundsodd in you ears)that back on the book maybee realy showwhat a great carver you are.just a little square piece of wood foolling everybodyto think it´s a real book.It simply can´t bee better . my hat of for youhave a great day with your wife Jordan

Dennis, you always make me laugh. No, I did not cheat, haha, although I’ve been watching youtube videos of CNC routers and laser engravers and I’m so bothered, yet torn.I saw someone with a duplicator and all they did was put a shoe in one side and the block of wood in the other and the knives duplicated the shoe – well not completely, but they had very little work to do to finish it. I keep thinking – how will I ever continue to measure up to technical perfection, then my wife told me that it’s the idea, not just the item that sells the product. Still, they cannot duplicate texture, although I suppose a laser could but leaves everything brown.Barb, all of the matches are one with the box, although it sure would’ve been a heck of a lot easier to do them one at a time, however, then I might as well have used real ones.Thanks LJ’s.
