A friend gave me a few logs from an old tree in his backyard, so I turned a couple bowls for him as a thank you for the logs. It’s an 8” bowl, ash I believe, with a crushed rock inlay and finished with friction polish.

Great job on the bowl and the crushed rock is stunning!
Could I talk you into doing a little more info on that inlay process in a blog? I’d like to try something like that but don’t know where to start…

Thank you all for the comments, they help the motivation factor :-)
Mike, I’ve never done a blog, I am getting ready to do another stone inlay on a small bowl… I will see what I can do about blogging the process.

I found the following link that you Might be interested in. Seems to be a complete how-to for inlay of rock. I haven’t tried it yet but looks like fun for something different.
