You succeed to express the beggar’s sadness within the wood. Gorgeous.

Wow Eli, That is one magnificent piece of workmanship. I “take MY hat off” to YOU.

PS. Where can I get one of those hats… I could use a few more shekels for extra tools…

-- 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.
