Need some advise my brothers.
I have a walnut vessel on the lathe. I have four groove filled with crushed rock inlay which I have purposely made proud of the surface of the vessel.
I need to bring the inlay to the same level as the surface, but I don’t know the best method of doing that.

I could just turn it out and dull my tool which I can sharpen right up again, or use sandpaper and stand there for hours and hours risking the ruin of the entire piece.

So I could sure use some advise from some of you experienced inlayers out there.

I happened across this video last night, the guy in the video seems to be addressing the issue you are talking about.

It sands easier than you think. I used crushed turqoise in a box and it sanded quite fast and nice. What kind of stone are you using?

I used Abalone shell and some blue stone, hardness was about 4 or 5. I watched the video above and got some idea’s. It’s complete and I’m going to post it in a few minutes.
