    It took me 4 days to get through from page one and I must say that all of the comments here don't express what I see in the artistry of these pieces. My expressions going through the pictures ranged from "Wow" to "incredible" to "Ridiculous" (in the best way possible). Better and better and the work is top notch. I keep trying to fond a PM button to enquire to getting one myself but still do not see one... I can really appreciate the labor going into these and the skill learned along the way. The patience must be ridiculous too. Thanks for sharing this work it is impressive.

    It really has been a wonderful experience watching Bo's skills improve with each project.

    This forum software uses "conversations" rather than PMs, and you can actually involve more than one person:

    Thanks for taking time to browse the lengthy thread. It is a chapter in the story of my life.
    I also would like to thank you for the additional couple hundred likes or more you left. You really boosted my count, lol.
    I don't hang out here as often as I used too due to more changes in my life, but I haven't quit.

    I made a mistake on this one, but I just had to try this different style. Live and learn. I'll use it for my own I guess.

    Yes. May have found another source for the black suede.

    I still have that suede I used on yours. Toast color I think it was.
