Progress on the stump is going well. For the past week, every evening rather than working out in the cold shop, I have had a comfortable seat on the couch inlaying turquoise and copper. At first I only planned on doing a few inlays, but as the cold weather continued, so did my inlays. This project should be pretty awesome when I’m all done!!
My uncle made me a really handy stone crushing tool that takes the mess out of smashing up turquoise into small pieces and dust.
Once I sand these all down, I will have to go back and fill a few holes that will happen when the sander pulls out a few stones. Then another round of sanding and I will be ready for the oil finish.
