This is our first of many bowls my wife and I created that will have a natural stone inlay. The bowl is turned from green River Birch donated from my parent’s campground up in Asheville, NC. The bowl is about 7 1/8 inches in diameter, 4 inches tall, and weighs about 1lb 1oz. The inlay was done by my wife who used Sleeping Beauty Turquoise. Finished to 800 grit sandpaper with a three stage Tripoli, white diamond, wax buffing system.

The inlay adds a lot to the bowl. I have some Turquoise and need to give that a try.

How hard is the turquoise to use? I’ve been interested in this for awhile but don’t know where to start.

Thanks for the good feedback!

@Jasony, I just wrote this in response to the other bowl I posted. Hope this answers your question.
