    I tied this one awhile back but never liked the mixed wing on it that much, so decided to try and redo just the wing with a married wing, wasn't sure if it would work without ruining it, but it worked out OK. I like it better now so I guess it was worth it, hope you like it...

    I can't imagine being able to tie something as nice as you have here in the Baker Kelson. Thank you for posting these photos, and it is inspiring to see... but after just completing a rather simple tie that took me way to long, I feel like a complete beginner :)

    Nice!

    Thanks Jeff, I'm glad you like it and that it inspires you, that's the main reason I post them. There is a bit of a learning curve to tying these, but it just takes the desire and to put in the time it takes, but I think most tiers have the ability to tie them with practice.
