Current project once again regained 'impossible' status after running into some technical difficulties, at 1,800 hours.  That won't do.  Time to tighten up.  Still using the 'modified morse method' but have changed approach from making logs out of toothpicks to making forests out of splinters, or something like that.  Creates more possibilities and that's what matters most at this point.
Hopefully nothing else goes wrong, like dropping it on the floor (yikes).  Wish me luck.

Added tidbits to scraps for the 'how does he do that' group.

Ten Cuts by eggdoodler
Ten Cuts
Just a visual to give an idea how things are tightening up.  Actual large finishing cuts are well under a millimeter in length, estimate cut depths at 10 - 20 nm.

Modified Bur Comparison by eggdoodler
Modified Bur Comparison
First modified bur.  Learned quite a bit (no pun intended), resulted in a collection with even smaller heads and 'tuned' shafts.  Helpful in dealing with the tight spots and provides a nice 'feel'.

Still doodling.  Working on a project that I initially decided was impossible.  Some ideas have to be exorcised.
Decided to go with K.I.S.S. and utilizing the 'modified morse method', series of dashes and dots ranging from 3mm to the nit on a gnat.
Oddly enough, may actually pull it off.  Hope to complete 2015.

Added some pics of 'pencils' and other curiosities to Scraps.
