anvil, ring

(no subject)

I got some solid work done on various commissions this weekend, including finishing one. :) I also got some time put into a couple of other projects.

Our other news is that in a couple of weeks we'll be the proud owners of a computer-controlled engraving/milling machine! We've just not been all that happy with the manual one we now have, especially the inside-ring module (very important!)... and it didn't end up being able to do some of the things we'd hoped it could handle, especially in terms of original designs. Plus, of course, no milling! I can think of all sorts of uses for the new puppy, so even though it's rather more expensive than we'd hoped, I think it'll be worth it based on all it can do. I'm dying to try it out!

...so I have an extra incentive to get thoroughly caught up on my commission work ASAP, since else I'll have to put off playing with my new tool. And that would be dreadful!
