I am very happy to see the episodes on the shell.
I’m actually building the Tall Case Clock of Goddard. I still have the top of the clock and the shells. It will help me a lot to carving a the two Newport Shell. Thank you and good day.
Great timing! Have fun!
Your videos and instructions are the most comprehensive and relevant I’ve seen. Your book may be the best, real “how-to” book I’ve ever read. Just excellent instruction, easy to follow, and easy to reproduce lessons. Keep on keeping on!
Thanks so much!!
