I’ve been making quite a few of these platters lately. Been using a variety of local woods, and stone- chrysocolla, turquoise, apatite, lapis. Burn through a heck of a lot of sandpaper, but I like the wood and stone combo.

I get my stone from all over— ebay, madagascar minerals, and my new favorite carefree chrysocolla- a mine in AZ. Even dug some myself.

Great job. These look great. How do you do the stone? Epoxy? I would like to try this but have no idea where to start on how to do this

I love it, Well done.

I’ve made a couple and used Opal chips.

Thanks for showing.

Hey, strange things happen, just ordered “Inlace” and a few drams of powder last night. I have a scroll saw spider that I’m working into keychains. How deep are your inlays ?
................... and look at for powder , stone, and coral

Very nice Andy. I too like the stone inlay in wood. I have been playing around myself, doing different things with the stone. Keep up the good work. Doug

That is fantastic, it looks like a river flowing through the wood.
Very creative.
