Joe you think I should? It is getting legal everywhere…
Lew I like round nose scrapers and keep the rpm’s under 500 or bam, I break about half of what I turn and it is usually in the finishing process all looking good and bam been hit pretty good by a piece exploding

That is a nice looking peacepipe and a great bowl. Where did you get that soapstone, is it readily available,
and how expensive is it? Thank you for sharing, and please give a little more information.

Blue I added a couple pics for you…I got this stuff twenty some years ago it is down to these few pieces now there is a few different kinds or colors in my collection but nature makes lots of variation…the stuff I have is dynamited so it is full of fractures the thin stuff they harvest for counter tops is mined thru water expansion..those sheets are about 1 1/2” thick 4’x8’ sheets at approx $30 a sq foot…handle with care and have help lifting it can be way petter than granite but softer and breaks… I am sorry for the bad grammar…

Thank you for the additional pictures and the information. Guess I will have to check with some of the stone
countertop places around here and see if the have sink cutouts or other pieces.

Yeah if it was not for countertops we would have a tuff time locating it but it could be in our own backyards? I would like to get more as well if you stumble on a good source let me know…
