Admin reply: I think I remember you. Heh heh, HOW COULD I FORGET? Also, you are one of two people in the world I really wanted to tell that I became Catholic last year. The other was Eddie whom I worked with at Stouffers across the street from AIP. I'm corresponding with him again, and I'm really glad you contacted me. Congratulate me and say "I told you so." How have you been these thirty five years?

Comments: Hello Russ!
Here I was, surfing the net casually, seeking specific informations regarding 221b Baker Street, when I came across your website and was practically fed all the details I was looking for. Hah! I was browsing through your notes, my Sherlock Holmes novels at hand, checking out every info like a kid would shake his presents on Christmas morning. Thank you sooo much for this!
I had one last question that remained unanswered, however. Was it mentionned anywhere, or is it possible to figure out, what were the measurements of 221b Baker Street? If not mentionned directly in the books, perhaps the information can be calculated based on other measurements that would have been given (a desk, a table, anything present within the flat)?
Thank you for your time, as well as for the spectatular representation you've made of the consulting detective's apartment.
Admin reply: Thank you for your kind words. The only reference to room size I can recall is in The Adventure of the Priory School: "And yet his first action, when the door had closed behind him, was to stagger against the table, whence he slipped down upon the floor, and there was that majestic figure prostrate and insensible upon our bearskin hearth-rug." This seems to imply that the door and table and hearth rug (and fireplace) were not far from each other. That's the best I can recall!

Admin reply: Hi Alan, I think you are looking for a guy who has room in his schedule to take on a new project. Thanks for the offer and gracious words, though!

Comments: Hi Russ,
I like your sketching very much! Thanks for sharing and thanks a lot for the sketching book, it is really good, both for learning and for inspiration and encouragement.
I want to try to replicate your thermoforming setup and I have a couple of questions, if I might:
1) Where did you get the screen/perforated metal sheet for the vacuum box? Did you do it or bought it?
2) What do you use for the wood to make the palette molds? It looks like it could be balsa wood! Is that it?
Thanks in advance for your help and info!!! Best Regards, Carlos
Admin reply: Hi Carlos,
I just bought a sheet of metal with those holes already in it. I have seen wood panels with similar holes, so you might be able to find something locally or on the web. The wood for the molds was cheap soft wood. I think balsa may be too soft, but I have never tried it.

Pax et bonum,
Admin reply: Hello Kevin, well, now we have a celebrity post on this board. Or shall I say "superhero?" In addition to the Journey Home testimony, just read a version of your testimony a few days ago over at the Why I'm Catholic site, so this is a happy surprise.
