Apparently, its not a pairing, I'm sending a gift to a user named EGiR, and receiving a gift from you... I also like surprises! I do like wooden items, and even better if its recycled wood.

Ok, in order to make a gift you might actually use, I have a few questions: Do you cook? Would you use drink coasters? TY -Neph

Ok, I have one more question, then i'll leave you alone :D Do you have anything against reclaimed animal bone? I carve cleaned cow bone and I was wondering if it would be ok with you if your gift had some kind of bone element involved.

Nope, no problem at all. Just FYI, I'm going out of town for the next week, and I'll only be checking e-mail sporadically.

Here are some examples of what I mean. All the pictures are my own. Sonobe and Five interlocking tetrahedrons are both geometrical origami, made of paper.

1) Chainmail (The left would be a Medium project, and the right a Large, I can make a small 3 - 5 links wide too)

2) Latex face mask, the black and blue one. (That is me, and my own handiwork on the face mask, the rest I bought)

3) Stool Top. A poor example, this was a trial that didn't work out, but I have gotten many compliments on my repairs to canoe seats using this same method.

An Example of Sonobe can be seen here: Google Images Sonobe
An Example of five interlocking Tetrahedrons can be seen here.
