You HAVE been missed Jordan, but it is with great understanding. Your work is beautiful and every painstaking detail is well worth the effort. It all shows and I am certain when you are finally finished, your client will be thrilled. I have had three people today email me to ask where I have been on Facebook. I just haven’t had time to do everything and respond to everyone. I think that most here will understand – especially when we see how much you have accomplished!

It is a BEAUTIFUL shirt and you are doing a fantastic job. It is great you took a little time to update everyone here. I know I am speaking for everyone when I say we really look forward to it!

Hang in there and remember to take breaks when you can. There are lots of good distractions here and wonderful projects to see. Have a great night and thank you again for sharing!

This is just superbly awesome! It is really difficult to comprehend how someone can take a chunk of wood and make it come to life as you have been doing. I am sure that if you are able to keep awake at night you will see all your pieces come out to dance and play! I am really impressed.

Yowser!

Would you show us a picture or two of the tools you use to create such wonderful works of art?

Maybe in order of use?

Jordan, that is simply fantabulous. The longer I look (admire it) at it, the more I want to slide it off the hanger and put it on! Even a real war shirt doesn’t look that real ! ! ! I otta know ! ! ! If you ever decide to open a school or offer a carving seminar, I’d be the first to sign up . . . even if I have to walk from Oklahoma to Calgary! If your war shirt is not a master piece of art, I don’t know what is!

It is so life like I can almost smell leather. Your work is truly amazing.
