Two rocks made with walnut and maple,shaped with a Shinto rasp and some files. Bored 1/4” holes for
brass pins in each rock. I forgot the name of the center wood, but it was there so I used it.

The flat part of the stone was shaped with a 1200 DMT honing plate and
it was done quicker than I thought possible.

One must rotate the rocks to find the balance point, otherwise it tips over.

I like stone and wood in combination. Nice project.

Sorry, I don’t get it.
