    Hoss... the "candles" are Dragon Skin molds for my duck heads.

    Cripplecreek... The jackets for my molds are 2" pvc cut down the middle with the band saw. Good guess, I'll have to remember that when I get in a bind and have no pvc.

    Deer stuff and electrical project all over my workbench. Had to set up a temporary workbench for the birds. I did not want to show the end results of the bird.
