Those are beautiful eggs, you really made the figure pop. Is that wood from that gnarly tree you showed in the lumber section? Amazing stuff.

Those are very cool and the way you have displayed them is also awesome. That's quite the finish on them. Very nice work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Nice job Chris,
as always. I really like the QL maple you guys have over there. You must have some pretty good looking dragons to lay eggs as nice as those.
