Hello everybody. I have lurked on this site for some time now – reading, looking and learning from the best craftsmen I would ever wish to find in one place. Your willingness to teach is extraordinaire for an amateur hobbyist such as myself. I’m quietly honing my skills and techniques to where I feel comfortable to display the finished product. Although I occasionally dabble in large projects, such as furniture, I love doing mosaics and illusion art ala MC Escher. I hope these meet your standards. Thanks.

I think my eyes crossed themselves several places in there trying to follow the lines. Mr H. Houdini would even be impressed too.

Nice work, figuring out what to do next is as difficult as the cuts, very nice designs.

Thanks for posting this for us to see. I’d say welcome, but your “noob” is about expired, but do type more often

-- 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.
