I recently attended a Craft show in Florida and the wood turners were filling some voids what seemed like ground semi-precious stone. If so how is that done and where can I order some ?

There are quite a few sources out there for ground materials. You can pretty much use anything you want, mixed with epoxy, to create interesting gap-filling material.

What Charlie said, including used dried coffee grounds, money(both paper & coins), Copper/Brass filings, fingernail clippings. Well, biomedical may not be a good idea. :) Get creative. For one guy’s creativity, google for “Poop pen”, seriously.

My one penny contribution: the nice guys at Cook Woods also have ground stones for inlay, plus a very decent inventory of dream lumber. And again, as Charlie said, epoxy is usually the way to go to inlay ground material.
