The carving of the Tibetan dining table is proceeding with the usual issues: right shoulder pain, left elbow pain, lower back pain. Seriously, how did they not mention that during the Renaissance, when they were working with marble, a much harder medium? Mind you, those old folks didn’t try to watch cricket on their laptops at the same time they were carving.

As you can see, (a) I’m more than halfway done, and (b) it’s going to look stunning. What is not clear from this shot is that all the carved sections need to be cleaned up and sanded to smooth out all the gouge marks. Wait for the actual video of that, coming soon……
