  1. First saw McNabb’s work in an issue of Fine Woodworking a year or so ago. Amazingly detailed and intricate work. Also a perfect answer to the “what to do with this cut-off scrap” question that all workers-of-wood face.

    And now that his work is being featured on Adafruit….maybe its time to throw some neo-twinklies on a couple of those scapes?
