I follow the whole process of the bridge, but do you hand carve the pyramid portions and if so, how do you get them so even from end to end? It looks great.
Thanks Tom. Yeah Steve got a splinter a while back right under the fingernail. It has since gotten infected and now may need amputation (I'm assuming). It is in a bad way. Progress waits for no man though.

To your point on carving bridges on the English Brown Oak thread. Patience really. Steve has a set height he wants it to hit and works with rasp, file, and sandpaper to get it there. He's much more of a sculptor than I. I need many markings to make it halfway match, but Steve's eye and skill trumps mine every time.
