I agree, I'm planning on entering, just for the fun of it.   Have nothing chosen, but will definitely find something.   And the next time it comes around I will happily donate some slabs or something as the prize!

Hello again!

Here are the projects that my last weekend involved.

First off I was sent this chunk of azurite and malachite to chop.
Rather odd stone to cut. There were probably three or four possible options and this was the beginning and end shots. The only waste was from the grinding process.



Next came an Indian Paint stone that was cut in the shape to highlight the different patterns that the rough provided. This is a pretty fragile stone so I couldn't get to narrow with the cut.



A couple interesting #8 turquoise cabs that were requested to be in the shape of a 'triangle'..


And finally the cab that I wanted to enter into the comp.. Don't really know the background other than it a type of agate.. Being the first one in the gate requires something special.. I really like this stone a lot, but not really sure if it would qualify as a outrageous cab.. Nevertheless..



I really hope you guys enjoy this.. Like you guys cutting rocks and looking at them is in my blood.. Thank you for looking :)

Beautiful stones!  I like them all, but I LOVE the Indian Paint Stone.  That is one kick-butt pattern in that cab.   :toothy9:

Oh, and absolutely, that is an outrageous cab!  Nothing boring about that one.   :icon_thumright:

Thank you so much Robin! The Paint Stone is kinda neat with the all the patterns and colors..

Mrs. Townsend gave me the sparkly wow.. Thank you so much too! I appreciate your kind words..

I'm not sure if I put this up on the other site, perhaps? Anyways, this was a cab I did that really got under my skin literally.. Mad River Agate that was gifted to me by a friend.. I find this material interesting and was sealed prior to cabbing. It's a bit tricky dealing with the open tubes..



Cheers!

Jason...
The one you are thinking about putting int the comp looks like flame agate.  I'm not 100% sure however.
The Mad River Agate looks really cool with the tubes in it!   :headbang:

However I have to say the really orby malachite/azurite mix is stunning.  It's not often you find material with those patterns in it with so much azurite in the mix.  You did an incredible job pulling all those cabs from the material!   :icon_sunny:
