Oh boy, just love this one Ron, don’t know how you get that blended swirl type effect but it sure is fabulous, the blue looks like it’s on fire.

Mark I don’t stabilize the cholla. I too am surprised how well it stays together. I think the Alumilite helps that. It is dirty to turn as it wants to almost be a powder at times. You will see more of these

Absolutely FABULOUS Ron, the resin variation is beyond words.
Thanks for sharing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
