  • Red Rock

    Finished polishing this slab of red Jasper for my collection of misc. slabs. Don't know if it would knap or not but it would make one heck of a point. It won't go that rout as it will just go into my collection of cool material slabs. Thought Redrocks would like it, lol. Click image for larger version

          You use an angle grinder and buffing wheel? How do you do that? Could you put a “fat lip” all the way around so that mashed potatoe’s gravy wouldn’t just run off “flatrock” style?

            Yes, angle grinder of 6 different grits then 5 pads of finer paste. Sorry nature won't let my cut a bowl shape good only for pop tarts and dry pan cakes.

                  This late contribution to this post is really a tribute to OldRocks because I’m a contributee. Did y’all get that? OldRocks collection of “cool material slabs”is missing this:

                  because I’ve got it. This is not just any ole coprolite; it’s fossilized DInosuar Do-Do. OldRocks found it too flaky to knap, so I asked for it, and he sent it! (If I’d known he had collection of cool material slabs, I may have not been so rudely forward; but not knowing any better, I was...). Second picture I took with bright light behind it. Beautiful, huh?!
