I wonder if this is artistic, or pyschadelic, or mathematic, but for sure it is well made and beautiful. For sure, it involves patience, patience and patience.

Can’t wait for the rest. “I” thank you for posting.

A real show stopper David, beautiful work. I can’t wait to see the finished project. I would also like to know what sled sanding is.
