Every year I donate a heart to a silent auction for charity. You have seen lots of these on my projects page, but this time I decided to try my hand at stone! I am thinking, maybe this will sell for more than my wood projects in the past.
I used limestone and this piece is about 6” wide x 5” tall x 6” thick. The base is a wonderful piece of African Mahogany.
It seemed to be not that much different than doing some of my woodwork. You still have to sand it to 2000 grit, but you only do wet sanding in a rubber tub with it, after you have mostly got it roughed out. A final coat of wax really brought out the shine and made it look like a jewel.
I would love to hear your thoughts.
