    She said the area a 112 allows for scrimshaw work makes it a joy to work on. DM

    David, great scrimshaw work by Leesa; she is indeed a very talented lady. So, as soon as she gets finished with that, I assume you are going to put her to work on the bolsters!! :D

    Tin Sue, thank you very much. Always the gentleman. The customer did not request engraved bolsters on this gift. Perhaps she'll do that on another model. DM

    Thank you Ed for these comments. Should one examine the two sides of this 112, in dealing with the two 'B's of each side. She selected opposite ends to began each B with. This allowed a contrast with each side. The wider end allows for a larger B or more scroll work. Notice on this she gave him both. Thus, a more balanced work of art. DM
