Here's my first skeleton prepared by this method; a
Northern Saw-whet Owl. The entire skeleton weighs 5
grams, the same weight as an American 5 cent piece.

TO OUR MANUAL USERS AND POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS

Our manuals  are the most expensive bone-building books in all of Homer. And now they are even more expensive. Effective
January 2015, all manuals went up $5 . . . Over the 12 years since the manuals first started coming out, they have remained at
the original published  price. Over the years we have added more and more pages, more illustrations and more information -
and we'll continue doing so. Meanwhile, printing and shipping costs have gone up to the point where we are forced to raise
prices. Please keep in mind that these manuals are printed in very small press runs by a local printing shop - no cheap
overseas printing happening here - and they still come with an invitation to send an email to me for
personal assistance if you get stuck or have any questions or comments.

Happy Bone Building,
Lee and Mary
