Thanks! Yep, some of those good old smooth but strange transitions in this one.

pulling and ratcheting are the only ways to go. i tried pushing and crocheting and that didn't get the job done at all. splendid.

"mister keyboard"? say... you want to look around and describe the room you're in? is it kind of on the small side? are there nice people wearing white walking by your door?

Where do you find all of your materials? It's always such good stuff.

Oh, thanks. It comes from all over, I'm always on the lookout, and I save it up and it piles up. The stamp on this came in the mail last year. =fredfree sent me the old picture. But the underlying pieces are usually from old books, and I have a few of them I go to time and again. An old poetry book from very early 20th century (I bought it used from abebooks.com for a couple poems I was interested in, then bought another copy to read and started cutting up the first one!), a 19th century church hymnbook (don't remember where I got that), an old automotive mechanics manual (that's where the ratchet wrench came from). I really like old books with paper that's aged a bit. Used bookstores have them, some libraries sell off their old books. Let's see - also the Sunday newspaper... sometimes an old comic book from my basement... any kind of paper is fair game.
