Alabaster and epoxy turned and hollowed. The epoxy is dyed with transtint dye. This piece weighs more as it is 8 inches across at the top and almost 4 inches tall

Thank you.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

I will soon be done with all my alabaster and will return to wood. It will be time then to dust off the shop. If you can imagine dust 2 inches deep at the lathe

The alabaster comes from the New Mexico stone co. This harvested without heavy equipment and it does not have the crack and fishers of many alabasters. The young man that owns the company is Jason. I have been buying from him the last 3 years. Freight is the killer. 8×8x8 weighs in about 42 pounds. Most of what I have posted are in the 10 pound class, small pieces. I have an 8×8x9 that I am looking at doing. That is big
