At long last, the wait is over!

We have all been waiting patiently. Why? Because masterpieces take time to create and I wouldn’t call this anything less than a masterpiece.

Stunning… brilliant… lifelike… the list could go on all day, and I’m sure it will.

I don’t know about everybody else, but you’ve absolutely blown me away!

A huge congratulations on this piece, Jordan! HUGE!

Jordan, it is absolutely wonderful! I can’t think of words that will do it justice. Thank you so much for sharing it with us throughout the process. Your client will be thrilled! I hope you and your wife have a well deserved break and take some time for yourself and enjoy the many words of praise that will come your way. You have certainly earned it!

Unbelievable! Sheila

WOW, WOW and WOW! You will get tons of compliments and deservedly so! This is simply a superbly carved MASTERPIECE. I hope, no make that I know you will get more commissions off of this.

Make sure that one of the new tools is the Arbortech blade! (if you haven’t gotten it already).

My wife said that if she had not watched along with me, she would have thought it was real leather, feathers and beads. She said “Simply Awesome!”

a masterpiece!

Oh how I wish I was in your presence at the moment so I could give you (and Laura) a great big hug to show my gratitude for having the privilege of “seeing” this and to honour your skills, your perseverance and your gift to the world!

You are an inspiration. Thank you.
