    Not at all. My long-awaited order will be placed in the next 5 days, and I'm almost looking forward to these pics more than the chips... :)

    This is by far the most interesting thread that has been started in a LONG time! I am finding myself more and more tempted to sell a bunch of stuff and get a set of customs going. These pics are that cool.

    Michael, you're a genius. I don't think it's possible to generate more interest in your product than by simply letting folks peek behind the magic curtain. Well done. :cigar:

    got an email from Michael tonight. Never mind I'm at a baseball game with my wife and kids. Never mind that I shouldn't be checking my email at all right now.

    Title: almost done.

    Double check, almost done?

    My heart beats faster. But wait, there's an attachment. Orchestra plays! News that the "Chateau de Noix" is almost done is amazing enough from the email title alone, but this. Oh this has potential. Oh yes, potential.

    So I show the title to my wife. She rolls her eyes. Whatever, gotta download this puppy.

    Oh the horror! One bar? One lousy bar? 948k attachment. Go go go go!

    34k

    128k

    340k

    Lost connection, ack!

    milliseconds feel like decades here.

    658k

    908k.

    No signal. Oh for the love of...c'mon! Connect already.

    Another eye roll ignored.

    And then, in placid splendor, it is there....the in progress shot that blows me away. Not only am I staring at my chips, inlay in place, aligned and gorgeous, but there's something else. Is that, it is! Underneath those gorgeous chips lies the...

    Waaay beyond cool.

    You should print out the photo, and frame it with the actual finished chip. Should be fairly easy to pick out one of those, based on spots....

    I think there's going to be more than one of these photos up in my card room. Adding the chip is an excellent idea.

    Second the idea of framing that pic! Or even doing one of those print to canvas type pictures with it. I did one of those for a friend for xmas and it came out great. Love that chip too! Banhammer standing down...

    The third of the bunch is probably my favorite with the slug punched and the spots in place but the second pressing hasn't happened.

    Michael is doing such a great service for the crazy fans we are. It's great to see chips in progress and even more so when they are your own chips!
