-- 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.

A very attractive paperweight you have there. Hmmm…I used to do copper enameling so I have lots of copper scrap, worked in a jewelry store for 10 years so have a bit of silver, gold, and platinum scrap (still kicking myself for not buying the damaged chains at cost when I had the chance and gold was $300/oz.). Do I have enough to make my own paperweight? :)

Thanks for posting
