I just went through the album and I cannot thank you enough for putting that together. It answered soooo many questions I had about the construction process.

“So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.”

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

damn Jake, that looks like the stuff Vince Evans used to turn out. That is about the highest compliment I can give for that sort of set.

“Years ago I recognized my kinship with all living things, and I made up my mind that I was not one bit better than the meanest on the earth. I said then and I say now, that while there is a lower class, I am in it; while there is a criminal element, I am of it; while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.” E. V. Debs

Incredible work.  I second Joshua's thanks for putting together the album on Facebook.  I want to make dirks and sgian dughs, and the album is a great tutorial.
