A man of many talents, Gerald has put in his time behind the airbrush and automotive bodywork. His new site showcases his efforts on several vehicles as well as other projects. Believe me when I say some are truly breathtaking - I've seen some of these up close & in person. Gerald's GTO will soon be offering a How-To eBook on doing bodywork - reconstruction and restoration - detailing the use of products that are currently available. When a master craftsman offers his expertise, it is well worth the reading!
This guy has provided me with a LOT of inspiration and has helped out on more than a few of the projects and hobbies that I get into. From camping to gold-panning, spelunking, kites, and cross-country excursions, Dennis' experiences are definitely something to share. His Aspenweaver site is more of an experience-it yourself than a do-it yourself for now, but that is not to say he doesn't build his own gismos & gadgets as well. Be sure to stay tuned to his site for his profit-making series!
This is where I purchased the font for doing the Celtic knotwork design on the CD-Rack.

For the easiest way of doing Celtic knotwork layouts I know of, be sure to visit their site!
