Mind Blowing project

http://lumberjocks.com/projects/61013

I was scanning through some of the finished projects on lumberjocks and I came across this thing. I am blown away by this, and honestly can't imagine how you can make something with so much detail and precision. Thought I would share so others could enjoy!

That's awesome. But my guess is that kenbo or buggy man could do that.

cabomhn,
He is amazing. Been watching his projects for a while. There are 32 up as of today. All but a few are insanely intricate.

People that have the patience and ability to do things like this and intricate scroll saw work are truly amazing artists. I tried, i am definitely not wired for that type of work.

Just to clear anything up, I wasn't trying to compare this guy's quality/skill to anybody on here, I just really like trains and thought I would share.

Sorry man, I didn't mean to come across combative, and you're right, it IS amazing work for sure.

Wow, that train is pretty awesome. The details are something else. Thanks for sharing this one with us.



And just for the record, thanks for the kind words guys.
