Every time I look at anything you do, I Think to Myself, "WOW... the time this person puts into this stuff must be unbelievable..."

You do such awesome work.  I feel as if I've asked before, but do you just use hand-tools?  I do everything with nothing more than Knives & files, and it takes DAYS to finish some of the things I've done.
{that said, I'm still Learning}{and much of the time My stuff takes is filled with, "OK, what next?"}

If you're using the same tools I do, I can't even Imagine how long you spent on that Jade.  The Bone part alone would've taken Me forever.
