    Beautiful...that's going to be fantastic when done. It looks like there is some background relief in the scroll..yes/no?

    Please continue to post pictures of this project as it progresses. This is going to be a real work of art (actually, it alreay is! :)

    Update, I spoke to Ken this morning and he is still having back problems.
    He is also in the process of having some new work benches built,
    I asked if he could when he feels up to it if he could at least
    do the Trigger guard. Heres hoping your feeling better Ken, B.C.
