    I watched the whole process with great interest. The long way around the barn for sure. You have the patience of a saint. Very nicely done.

    Wow, Garrison-Your patience and skill seemingly know no bounds! Will you adopt me as an apprentice for about a year so that I can (maybe) get to your level?

    Seriously, though-Great work!

    That is a thing of beauty! When you look at the blade you started out with and then look at the finished product..... just awesome. Maybe one day, I can do that, but it sure isnt now.
    You should whip up a batch of those domed collars and put them in the Movember auction. Those are sweet.
