Hi Dave ! I dont use the cording techniques in my work, but I know
what you mean, there are many carvers here, both in stone and bone,
that do. I have a book here that has some how to do it pages, its
called Bone Carving by Stephen Myhre. I have a friend here, he used
to be on Orchid, not sure if he still is, if you want I will ask him
if he could help you, let me know.
