    Rob, the show is July 25/26th in Drayton Valley, Ab. I do plan on having some fillets but they will require far less cleanup so the plan is to do them last. Still trying hard to keep on track but times ticking...lol!

    Very cool. I am always in awe at how one can intentionally get randomness. What did you mask with?

    Dan, I used nail polish. The randomness was using a crumpled up piece of paper dipping in nail polish and slapping the blade with it like a 2 year old...lol!
