Goodness! 

That's a job and a half, but what satisfaction and excitement as it slowly comes together. 

Good luck and I'll be looking forward to the updates. :)

Wow you don’t do things by half. What a project indeed. This is one to watch I think. Brilliant all the best.

Don’t you still have a regular day job?

 

Very cool, but man do you have your work cut out for you! It can be a nightmare trying to piece stuff together. 

Man if you ever take volunteer assistance I wouldn’t mind coming to help and learn prep stuff from you. I imagine I’d learn a ton. I don’t know where you live, but I doubt it’s any further away than places I go hunt.

Unfortunately, I do still have the need for a day job.

 

I think my shop might get a little crowded with 2 people in it. It’s almost a sensory deprivation chamber (with lots of light and noises). :P 

 

Honestly, if you really want to learn to prep and have time for it, sign up to volunteer in the lab at the Perot. You’ll get to work on some really cool stuff and they have state of the art equipment. Plus, Dr. Tykoski is really cool and the other volunteers are friendly.

I wish the museum by me would allow volunteers for that. When I go make the trip down to the field museum, I love just spending some time watching the prep lab. Unfortunately the rest of the family has no interest so I only get about 5 minutes there. Mpm is going to be building a new building in the future and hoping they make something cool like this.

I used to get the same treatment long ago. Now, since I know the paleontologists, I get even less time when the family is at the museum. :P

Nothing worth taking a picture of but I’ve had some luck finding pieces in the jumble of skull fragments that fit together.

Yes sir it is. Thankfully, there are a few large pieces, but most would fit on a silver dollar or smaller.
