Kari, I really like your writing style. Clear and informative. I love history and when it is about woodworking? Wow. I'm going to try these techniques, though I have never carved (successfully) a thing.

Interesting, really. I also like your writing style. However, I don't believe I would be able to make something like that myself. I'm not too good at handworks.
