Would be curious to hear how you fitted the scale to that curved bolster.

That was my fear too. I reached out to GeorgeK and he cast the resin around the curve. I cleaned it up.

For those of you not counting, that is a 17 piece handle. A lot of work.

Yes, it was. Lol. And it was worth it. I called this client to talk about another handle ready to ship. The wife answered the phone and never having talked to me before knew exactly who I was and showered me with praise. Then she asked if I could do something like this in jewelry/earrings.

Maybe I will branch out when I finish off my backlog.
