Been working on this one for a little while-the stress/twist cracks merited a slow turning. The grain patterns are different- go lots if directions- made for "interesting" sanding. Got the one void filled & it turned out nice even though it's partially clear- the turquoise settled some while it cured.
It's 11 x 4 inches, friction polish

Very nice looking. I'm jealous. I made a Peppermill out of a piece of mesquite that I hoped would have some wild grain. Instead, it's so plain, I yawn every time I see it.

Not sure if you're serious, but that would be great if you are willing. Do you have any 3"x3"x12"?
wouldn't offer if didn't mean it. Will try to find a piece from pile that has good marking & cut one. Send me a PM with your address?

Very nice, Doc. Love mesquite and turquoise!
I don't turn, so not sure if my solution to the sinking is viable. On flat work, I may use 2 or 3 pours of (usually black tinted) epoxy then, over fill with the final pour of stone/epoxy mix. If it's shallow enough, just one pour, but over filled.

School has kept me busy, shop fallen into chaos an disrepair but I cleaned up last weekend and have a few family requests for turned items so I'll be around.
