OH MY thats looks OUTSTANDING!!!! Jordan you’ve outdone yourself and that is hard to do seeing how everything you do is above and beyond anything I’ve seen .
You did a superb job on the color-s I’m telling you no one could tell it was made from wood

Great job my friend

Amazed as always Jordan. You were challenged and you overcame it and put out a fantastic piece. You have a very lucky client there, not only in the pieces you are making for him but also in going so far as to relocate for him.

I am very happy to hear that Laura is doing ok.

WOW, when I first looked at this I was wondering what a leather worker was doing where. I could not tell the difference. Incredible.

Had I not seen the pictures before this was finished, and you told me it was made of wood, I wouldn’t have believed you. It looks phenomenal!

Question: (with a grin on my face) Did you take a real harness (shown in the “after” picture) and paint it off-white to resemble wood (in the before picture?) :)
Your work is so REAL.

Q2: are you “moving moving” or “just moving”???

And I’m glad the surgery went well. May it be clear sailing from here on!

Very nice Jordan, I love a beautifully done piece of eye trickery, your carving is terrific, since your suggestive shaping/carving is so convincing have you considered depicting things that otherwise couldn’t or normally wouldn’t be so? I’m thinking of something like Jacob Cress’s ball and claw chair where he’s caved the ball of one leg almost trying to get away, enjoy your next project, look forward to seeing more from you, Matthew
