    Hello Janel, Remember it has been said we carvers are compared to surgeons when it comes to the fine details . one thing that is messed up and we will lose our patient so to speak in our case we will lose our project . you are doing a beautiful job with this project Bless you for taking your time to photograph it and share it with us . I know after a long day of working in my left brain the last thing I really want to do is think about being on the computer much less chatting or taking photos so a special thank you for running the site and sharing your work . Bless You Janel and Have a Good Day
