Two Is Better Than One and News Flash! Project Runway

 
Freshly Carved                 Original

 The quest is over looking for a block maker. Check it, It's true, there is a person that's not a block maker by profession that can carve and make BEAUTIFUL blocks and does them perfectly. Amazed? I am. Genius or artist? Both apply.  If you want info about him.. email
If any of you have been wondering who Armando is NEWS FLASH   
I've known Mondo since he was a wee teen.  Now he is a wee Designer Extraordinaire.  OH!  There's that word again.. DEAL.  PS  The "Y" is Spanish for "and or plus" not the middle initial of Armando y Montez.  Just to clarify that.  Anyway watch "Project Runway"  on the Lifetime Channel..PSSS  He doesn't have anything to do with this blog. That is an other long story.

DEFINITELY...
as sculptor and wood handcrafter if is skilled he can copy anything pratically...
but create blocks from sketches with proportions ,volumes,conterparts...
that take pratice lot of pratice...
and time to learn how to master ...
But that a very good news you get this man try wood handcraft block...
