wow. That must have taken an impressive amount of time and an unnaturally steady hand. And the scariest part for me is that no matter how well made, it is not going to be very sturdy – one flip of a dog’s tail and that all she wrote. It is really quite beautiful – just like the original. Take lots of pictures :-)

It’s a beautiful thing and I can see how it would take a lot of time. Congratulations.

The last time I saw Paris ... the last time I saw a model of the Eiffel Tower it was laser cut … this one looks a lot better and has more detail (guess you can only burn wood so small before it’s gone)! What is the height of the model?

Have you ever seen the real thing? It is awesome and to think it was to be torn down after the world’s fair!
