Charles,

Thank you for another dazzling display of your beautiful work..just amazing. I personally like the time before the final details are added, such as the 6th picture from the top which is the fourth picture from the bottom. Thank you very much for posting this sequence, very interesting. Yesterday I spent some time digging at various samples of iron using industrial antique chisels..now I appreciate your work even more.

It is pitch. It helps to snugly hold the piece in place whilst giving it some minor shock absorption. In other words, a hard material to hold in place, but soft & yielding enough.

Jan,

Thanks, most of us would like to see the process details.

yes, same for everything, 说是一回事,做又是另一回事, in English is,see as below.

Saying is one thing, and doing is another.

Like, it looks simple, but acturely not.

LIke, it looks hard, easier in fact.

So just do it. get the right feel
