That is a really nice piece, Ron. I have a bunch of cholla and more in Marylou’s truck that will be delivered at the end of the month. You are giving me ideas!!

Do you have a vacuum chamber to pull the material into the cactus?

That is real nice Ron, don’t know anything about chollo cactus, what is it like before you work on it? Nice coloring.

That is really beautiful Ron. Goes to show what can be done with some imagination.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
