Outrageous Cab Contest September 2018
« on: September 01, 2018, 08:26:38 PM »

Rules:
1) Cab must be made by you.
2) Cab must be made within the time period of this contest.  Contest begins on the first of the month and ends on 11:59 p.m. on the last day of the month.  NO pulling old cabs from your storage baskets!
3) As long as the basic shape is considered a cab it's golden.  You can enter intarsias and carved top cabs such as cameos etc.  After all, this is the OUTRAGEOUS cab contest!  We love free form cabs!  Pull out the stops and give us the best you have!
4) One entry per person please!
5) Please show photos of your slabs and preforms if you can so we can see your thought process and how you did things.
6) No finished jewelry pieces.  Just the cab.
7) Cab sets are OK.
8) This is only for bragging rights and your cabochon photo posted up top in the forums unless someone posts a lapidary related prize and wants to ship it to the winner of the contest.

Let the games begin!!!   :toothy10:

After two years of searching since "Agate Expo" in 2016 in Cederberg, Wisc. where I first saw a picture of this material, I have finally have ended my quest for "TAHOMA JASPER".

My cab for this month is some Petrified Wood that I picked up a while back.  It was decent size and had some amazing structure patterns but it had fractures.  I could get decent cab sizes out of it though but not big enough for scales like I wanted.  The cab here is 23mm x 37mm.  It was high quality after dealing with the fractures and reminded me of brecciated Jasper.
