        That's some amazingly detailed and precision cutting plus a very nice selection of patterns.

        Some folks just have a level of skill, patience and concentration that I can only dream about!

        Excellent work!

          Excellent cutting and choice of woods. I've made a couple of those classics myself. Thank you for sharing, and pushing me to get busy!

            I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

            If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.
