You seem to have a habit of finding unique materials.  I love that purple material.

That would make anybody whoop loud enough to hear across the valley. The truth is in the saw to reveal exactly what potential it has. Its going to be an exciting saw session.  Go for it.

I have done trades in the past for spheres sending enough material for 2 spheres. They keep one and send me one and usually the scraps so I can throw them in the tumbler. Most of these pieces are way too large to ship though. I would have to cut stuff down to fit in a flat rate box but most of these are too large for the largest saw at the club as well so I would have to figure how to get them cut down. If you would like to trade let me know what you are interested in and I will see what I can do. Have a lot of the baskenite, which is the first three pics.

VegasJames, I would be interested in a one for one that you mentioned on the baskenite Jasper.  Message me or e-mail me at exoticwoodturner@yahoo.com.

Sounds good. I checked and my baskenites are way too large to ship. Have some other stones you may be interested making spheres from as well. When you know for sure when let me know because I travel out of town often and I want to make sure I am here.
