    Now I'm just shaowing off LOL

    Just having fun. I have 3 Elk rosettes laying around I used for scrim shawl. Thought maybe this would be cool to try. This is Maple Burl/ spalt bottom , crystal sounding board with slate top. , I need to practice cutting slate. But it has a great sound with the Black African striker.






    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Looks great Dave what are you using to cut the slate? I wouldn't have a clue as to where to start...

    Ken I used 80 grit on a sanding wheel. Chips the edges up a bit. Think it I tape my perimeter I might have better results.

    Dave since u have brought up turkeys can u tell me what they do in winter. There was a large flock up the road from me but since the snow have not seen them around where would they be hiding out?

    Why didn't I think of that. I have a stone cutter also packed away.
    Thanks.

    I think a hole saw in a drill press without the center drill would work on round slates. Probably just have to make a jig to hold the slate and take it slow.
