Ha thanks Bruce! It's just super fine birch multiplex. Like 3 layers per 1/8". It was a last minute idea.

I'll post the "finished" SS in a day or two. Waiting on replacement phone anyway.

I used to have a friend, a real craftsman, who had a sign in his workshop that read, "APPRECIATE THE BEAUTY OF IMPERFECTION" . 
The Navajo intentionally weave an imperfection into their rugs....because only God is perfect.

The Japanese have a very simmilar philosophy. The word escapes me at the moment. "Perfection in imperfection."

I'm slowly shaping it and it's not nearly as bad as I thought. I may just emlarge it a bit once I have a drill press, and add a brass tube. I wanna add brass pins too

Here it is now. (My main phone camera is broken atm). I also wanted to show the first time I have ever used spacers.

I think, given the same amount of practice, you will get more immediate rewards with TTF.

But at the high end of expertise, I have seen absolutely astounding skill with both.

The primary thing is finding a frame that feels right for YOU. I have a drawer full of frames I went through before I found "the one."

Try 'Tuffnol' or similar - seen guys selling it as micarta even. Phenolic plastic reinforced with paper or cloth. Same stuff circuit boards are made from essentially.

Its very inexpensive and its amazing to work with - easier than wood I think.

Here's the stuff I buy: http://www.ebay.co.u...o1uW94SQgUxSKuw

Thanks. As a matter of fact Danny himself posted a build of at least one frame from that stuff.

And I've broken a circuit board on purpose before. Tough indeed.

Put my new chalice to work. Lovin it


What kind of wood is that? It has a bit of the vibe of a predatory cat.
