Thread: Curly maple w/ crushed turquoise inlay rim

  1. #1

    Curly maple w/ crushed turquoise inlay rim

    This is a recent one of mine, Curly silver maple (I thought it was silver anyway, could be sugar maple) with a shallow turquoise inlay on the rim. Turquoise is a pain to crush with a mortar & pestle. Pretty hard! Finish is Minwax Antique Oil. I'm new to photography. Sorry bout the lame pics. Its about 13" by 4" tall

    Dang, you've been busy. That's another great piece, Nate. I like everything about it.

    Thanks so much for the compliments, folks! This was fun, and challenging. I was informed this afternoon that you can buy turquoise already crushed. DOH! That would've saved some time. http://stores.ebay.com/GILMER-ROCK-SHOP

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Sweet bowl. I too like the inlay around the rim. Sounds like it's time for a tutorial!
    Aloha,
