    Some New Stuff

    Janel the first two photos are black and white ebony as I told David the feather and turtle are bone with crushed jet red coral and sea shell the dragonfly is tauga nut with crushed lapis the twig and blossom are also of nut with a homemade black walnut stain.The dragonfly and cattails have crushed jet and lapis for the inlay.the blossoms inthe next one really weren't doing it for me so I added the crushed coral to punch it up abit.The last one is bone with crushed lapis stone. Alot of this has been trial and error as I am still learning. I hope this explains well enough what I have done if you need any more just ask. Thanks Colin

    Hand Tools

    Thanks to you to Tony I need all the encouragement I can get. I find that working with my hands gives me a zen like feeling. To work alone in the quiet puts you in a different place.

    Hand Tools

    Thanks for the info Billy who am I to argue with success if making your own is the way to go then I'll give It my best shot. I have seen some of the info on how to make your own how hard can it be right lol. The journey of a thousand steps begins with the first one.

    Hand Tools

    Can anyone suggest a good set of hand tools for the beginner.I work mostly with bone. I,m just getting started and have had some success but I have been limited to I can do because of the tools that I have. All I have is some needle files and a set of cheap xacto knives.I have a dremel with a flex shaft but I find that I don't have the control that I would like. Any help would be appreciated thanks Colin P
