Just A Little Hint...

Just A Little Hint...
Well, new equipment has been tuned and working just fine. Heres a "little" view into some of the things going on. Below, is a partial finish, I still have the wood texture and aging to add, but it's there. Packaging for Historic Origins offerings is going to be, I'm hoping, collectible as much as the artifacts I make. I'm pulling all stops and doing things the way I want- over the top. And of course theres Lego mods I'm doing (Yes, can you say Greek, Roman, and Egyptian Legos?), Dremel mount(s) for a friend's pantograph project, and even some guilty pleasure stuff for myself in between.
