Beautiful work Ken,, Jade to go where no Jade has gone before... great work , Sometimes when I see such beautiful work,, I wish I hade started to work in stone, but I am happy with wood, and some of the stone pendant shapes have inspired me to use them in wood ,, some have been good and others just do not come close to the beauty of the stone. But I will try it again any way.

Thanks Ken & Ed, I hand sand & polish all my local nephrite jade, no rotary tool will give the same finish, some jades are bad for polishing, better to finish them on 1200 carbide paper dry, I have my procedure working good on my local jade, other locations still try my patience, this one was smoothed on diamond and polished on linde A, - alumina A, I may try to cave wood one day, my property here in Australia has heaps of timber, all native gum, box, red gum, have seen some awesome pattern in our white box, hard and heavy.
