How impressive, Jordan! I guess when we see how incredible it is turning out, we can forgive you for not keeping up. (Just kidding!)

I like how you showed it to us now – kind of teasing us with keeping much of it covered! It is with a great amount of anticipation that we all await to see the finished shirt. It is sure to be another masterpiece!

Thanks for taking the time to update us. I was just wondering about it, as I remembered that you said it was due to be finished mid-September. I almost wrote you myself!

All I can say is – Beautiful! :)

Take care, Sheila

we will catch up when you are finished!
I do have to say, however, that I’m glad we got to see this stage. It is the first time that you have shown us the set-up for the painting.
It does look like you have draped some cloth over a leather shirt. Extraordinary as always.
Now—get some rest or get back to work, whichever it is that you should be doing right now.

Hey Jordan, The war shirt is looking fantastic !!! I know your client will be much impressed..as are the rest of us. That is a lot of hours you have put into it and i know what you mean about liking shorter projects.

It is just stunning.

You have a rare gift,

Thanks for showing the progress made and tantalizing us with the expected quality of work that is coming from a master carver.

We were all getting concerned not hearing from you and not seeing you commenting as much as you have been, we also knew you were under the gun but relieved to know you are still alive and kicking.

Looking very good Jordan. I noticed you use the green tape….how do you like it? I have not tried it yet but was thinking about it.
Can’t wait to see the finished project.

That’s looking real good!

I bet it looks better than it tastes. I got a mouthful of walnut today. I like the nuts but the wood doesn’t taste good.

Thanks for the peek.

I am happy for you that you can see the end coming. I have had some projects over the years that thought would never end. Still made some money but not what I should have. I always felt things had to be done right no matter how long it takes. I guess that is part of being a craftsman. Looking forward to seeing the completed master piece that you are so well known to do with all your work.

God Bless

I am on edge waiting to see the finished product. I can just imagine what you are feeling Jordan…

I keep finding myself copying Steve’s comments but I can’t help but agree….. You sir do in fact have a rare gift. Very glad you are a part of this community so we can enjoy it.

This looks to be another amazing project, as your past works have been quite unique and extremely well crafted. I can’t wait to see the final photos and only wish I could view it in person to see the details. I can only envy the fortunate owner of this fabulous piece!
