Carpenter's pencil, so at least twice as much material as a regular pencil - piece o' cake ;)

There is a Japanese guy who scribes verses onto rice grains.

I carved a man out of a match stick once. Flattened the point of a needle into a kind of chisel tip to scrape away the wood fibres.

Love the engine and the pencil chain, that's incredible.

I don't understand how some of this is humanly possible. One artist said he carved between heartbeats, because that moved his carving tool!

I used to know Willard- a cool guy. He flies indoor rubber powered contest models too!

Has anyone here seen "The Wall" in Tasmania? Well worth the admission fee.
