    Great work Mike! The labeling of the pieces really helps one understand just how much detail went into the whole thing, beautiful work!

    Thanks All for the comments.
    I got to try out a couple of new techniques on this project, one being doing a lamination of the thin strips for the striped kitty. This was a fun project.
