Beautiful job. Is that turquoise or malachite? Can I ask where you are getting crushed rock of such nice color? Are you buying small pieces and crushing them yourself? Once again, great piece!!

Very nice. I never heard of filling in cracks like that.

Nice bowl. Did you use CA glue or epoxy with the turquoise for a filler?

Im also curious as to what you used epoxy or ca? Also what brand/viscosity? Did you just sand it on the lathe to even the inlay with the piece or did you use something else?

hi Tom it is turquoise, and I get it from bear tooth woods, or
Jim I used epoxy.
Jaycop I turned it down with an easy wood tool and then sanded it.
