I’m currently in Eugene, OR helping my sister and BIL setup for another gallery show for this Saturday at Bring Gallery

I took Amtrak’s Coast Starlight down from Seattle, after crossing over on the ferry, so it was an end to end trip on mass transportation.  I’m going to write a very long essay on the experience when I get back to Bainbridge.

Elmer from asks

Hey, can anybody know what best scrollswa blades to use are when cutting intarsia woodworking patterns?”

Sorry Elmer, but no.  That body of knowledge passed into history with the demise of thinking at the turn of the century.

P.S. Elmer, this is a PHOTOGRAPHY blog.
