Wow, that looks great!  You made “something out of nothing.”  That Super Jack sounds like a beast!  We’ve got a bridge here in the Bay Area that has been dropping blocks of concrete onto the cars below.  Maybe you cold come by and remove the offending material in your spare time.

Very nice, Kris.

 

One of these days I need to find the time (and some fossils) to develop some prepping skills.

 

Something for my fossil bucket list. ;)

 

 

Cheers.

Great work, it looks amazing and I agree with the tool marks. It wouldn't look as good if it was smooth around the bones in my opinion. Do you know from what are these vertebrae? Did you identify it yet? Man I must get myself piece like that again soon, miss it since I finished my Otodus vertebrae.

I would wind up removing the offending bridge. You know I'm always on the lookout for scrap metal!

They are plesiosaur vertebrae according to the more than famous (infamous) @snolly50. I don't bother too much on the ID when I'm doing a contract prep. I leave that up to the owner unless asked. :D

Looks like this was a fun project.  I had forgotten that you got yourself a super jack.  That jack has saved me countless hours of prep time.   Nice to have tools.
