"I really love that amazing Hands On sculpture. I feel very lucky to have had the chance seeing the early stage of making it in Kevin's studio. I hope to see it being displayed in that perfect spot some day when I come back to Arizona!"

He also shows a slick adjustable, magnetic straight edge guide that helps keep the cut straight.
