Glad to do it!!! I hope lotsa people get lotsa use out of them!!

P.S. It really is that simple. There are people that cast blanks using highly complicated methods of measure and what have you. Of course they probably make the best, most consistent blanks of all, but this method will get you making cool homebrew blanks in no time flat, with a $5 mold that will last for a REALLY long time that needs no tape, bo release agents, no hitting the blanks, and you have pourable access to the entire length of the cavity!

I think my next tutorial will be on prickly pear cactus, and making round cactus blanks!
