More patience than me.

Looks like a challenge for KenW.:wink:

I like Genesis the best. How he got those intertwining balls done I wouldn't know. I would hate to think of the jigs used and the rechucking needed.

There is allways some one coming up with a new challenge. They are magnificent, but well beyond my capabilities. Love the music allso.

They are actually not that difficult, but you need a mate to help you. He needs to be about 12 mm tall, and really good with a paper clip shaved of sharp at one end.

Mostly in French, but pictures are almost self-explanatory: Robert Bosco tourneur francais amateur d'art sur bois french amateur wood turner Drechsler Amateur (http://robert.bosco.pagesperso-orange.fr/modeleen.htm)

pdf files for most, too.

Of course, there's a world of difference between knowing how, and actually executing.

28 years of turning under the belt, but my works don't even come close to what the gentlemen is doing...brilliant!

Can't even wrap my head around how to do the layout for something like that:o
