Does anybody have experience in using coral (from the ocean) in furniture or wood projects? I am making a box for my brother and his wife as a thank you for letting me stay at their home in Hawaii. I collected a few pieces of coral from the beach and had an idea to use it as a lid pull/knob for the box lid.
I though I’d cut the piece I wanted, grind the bottom flat, drill a small hole in it’s bottom and secure it to the lid with a small screw. But I don’t know how it will handle being drilled or having a scew driven in to it.
Anybody have any experience with this?
