    Wow, I got a swap Project

    Received a beautiful surprise in today's mail I got the carved Picture Frame from Toni. What a beautiful piece of art. Thank you Toni, it will be proudly displayed in our home, and enjoyed forever. Did I mention that I am happy?
    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    I wanted to join in on this, but I could just not compete with what I was seeing produced. Some one would have been soooo disappointed. Maybe next time. Congrats, Charles. It is a beautiful piece for sure.

    That's bunk Paul, Personally I'd be tickled absolutely pink to have one of your scroll saw pieces, they're plain up straight an true works of art and that's no joking!

    Double-plus agree on this. We are not one of those other forums where folks try to out-do each other. A swap is a great way to stimulate our hobbies and our forum conversations. All are equal under the eyes of the swap .

    Congrats, Charles, you most definitely scored!

    And Paul, I agree with all of the above comments. We've seen enough photos of your amazing work to know you have no reason to be shy about it. I can honestly say I've never seen better scroll work.
