Hi, all, and thanks again for reading. We left off with the piece having had its “first” grind. The idea at this stage is to get the stone almost, but not quite, flush with the wood. This reveals unfilled voids in the inlay that h...
Welcome to the second installment! I had some pieces of leftover marble from a flooring project the former owner of our house had left behind. Just a word here on minerals and stones. I never buy pre-crushed stones. They are too uniform for ...
The raw Hickory blank was one I purchased a few years ago, which was wax-dipped and about 11” in dia. by 2” thick. It was completely dry when I started. I mounted the blank from what will be the front with a faceplate ring and 6 scre...
