V-Wiz, It may have something to do with permitting. Or lack of getting one before cutting, that resulted in a fine. The wood on the back of my pickup were from trees being cleared to make room for a house on a neighbors land. I got a couple of pickup loads back in the fall from wind fallen trees beside the road that was just about dry. I don't intend to buy any hardwood as long as I am able to go get it myself.

Chip, I'm not sure how the fern will turn out. I want be doig much grinding. The shells and the glass should already be exposed. I tried two test pieces with ferns, and I got varying results.

The impression of the fern and all air pockets will be filled with a black slurry. The filler shown in the test pieces was made from the same white portland as the other colors. On this run I will be making the slurry from regular portland.

That makes sense back filling is a great idea, I hope it works out, you are getting some interesting grains and colors.

Sorry about the late reply DVM,
I have been working a lot of hours and have had some camera issues as well. The test shelves, where I tried a new veining technique,

that drew that acclaim have been retired to my brain fart pile :>.

I have went back to the origional black sand veining that I first used. My Art Consultant on this build is a "task master" and I must meet her close scrutiny in all aspects of the build.
