Really nice work Ryan! Both projects are great! Congratulations on your tournament win as well! What an honor!

I love Kathy Wise’s patterns. Your fish looks lovely! Nice, flowing lines. I hope you are ‘hooked’ on intarsia now! ;)

Great work on both Ryan. Wow, you must be a fantastic pool player. I played a lot when I was younger and really loved it.

Way to go Ryan, that is one beautiful fish, it has a god Zen to it.

Jaime, Give the Jolly Rouge a scruff on the head and tell him he has folks from all over the world (including the backside of nowhere) admiring his work….Job well done….to both of y’all.
