    What a tease this is! It's like Biggest Loser when they show the scale ticking and make you wait until the next week to find out how much weight someone lost.

    However, the payoff in this is FAR better than anything on NBC.

    It's amazing that such pedestrian looking wood becomes what we've seen as the finished product. I could've found that wood in the scrap bin of my dad's shop when I was a kid, but it was destined for a much less spectacular ending.

    Awesome, Fantastic, Awe-Inspiring . . .

    Like probably HUNDREDS if not THOUSANDS of us who've been quietly watching . . . UNBELIEVABLE!!

    I thought the carving was impossible, then you started to paint! How in the heck do you keep your hand steady enough to draw what look like exact replica's of those bills?

    You are one talented artisian . . .
