"You're a good egg Noonan,......now pick up that piece of paper!" (Lou the caddymaster in Caddyshack)

Turned out nice Slick. Reminds me of when my mom used to make us kids soft boiled eggs and put them in the eggholder, which looks like your bottom of the egg without the base. We'd crack off the top half of the egg and dip our toast in it. Haven't had one of those in about 50 years. Might be time now.

That is a sweet looking egg. Nice work and a smart move not to go against what the fiance wanted. Pretty hard to turn eggs, when your chisels are up your @$$.

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