Jiri, I love carving but have only done it hear and there for maybe a month or so at a time. I’ve never been able to get very good at it because I’ve never been able to stick with it because of time constraints. However, I’m interested in it again so I’m going to give it another try. I’m a little old at 60 but I think that I will enjoy it and have a little more time now that I’m not working 6 or 7 days per week anymore. I appreciate you putting this up. I like your carving very much and would love to be able to do something that well. Congratulations on a job well done and for presenting it so nicely. I’m going to add it to my favorites.

Juri, I am in total and complete AWE. What a wonderful set, an heirloom to be sure. Thank you so much for the pictures of how you do this. I just started to carve, so seeing how someone as skilled as yourself does it is very helpful.

Thank you so much! Merry Christmas.
