    Damn nice work!!!!
    my wife did some stained glass for awhile and has since moved on to automotive interior work (theres a good market for it) and seeing she is a tailor she has the skills and machines lol.
    of course my cars will be the guinea pigs in the fall.
    itll be nice to have a 69 camaro with leather interior.

    I hand dug this pond 5 years ago and have maintained it ever since. I have raised all 9 Koi since they were 1/2" long. Once they started to outgrow the 40 gallon aquarium that they were in, I took action. They now range from 12" to 24" long. The pond is 600 gallons, 9' wide at it's widest point, and is 38" deep. In 5 years I have yet to lose one. They are all also trained to eat out of your hand and will let you do anything to them but pull them out of the water. My 6 year old sons friends are quite surprised that the fish will let them "pet" them.
