Read Thread: Staedtler Carving Set
Think, carving when the dishes have piled up to the ceiling. You finally stop to do the dishes, and suddenly you're inspired to do a still life carving of said dish pile. You go carve it, and hours later return to tackle those dishes. You turn the water on, and think, "Water! I have to go see what that carve looks like watercolored real quick..."
...but I agree that either use works ;)
Good for you! Congrats!
Don't listen to anyone. Wait for the antiques roadshow to come through.
Wow, good going Ele! Looking forward to finding more of your boxes! ;-)
