    This one and 3 others are now in the process of being "stabilized" Then the pain staking time consuming process of cutting and prepairing them into scales and blocks will soon follow.

    Mr Dinky. You know I am always down for a cool new project. So Dream on and lets make a plan!

    No new progress on the tooth. I have been busy doing Heat Treat testing on a (New to me) Stainless steel. When I get further along in the process Ill post some images of the tooth and resulting pieces. At that point. anyone wanting to snag a piece is welcome to contact me or post here with requests.

    Thanks
    Randy

    On a side note. I received some amazing cut and natural stones for Lisa to use for jewelry. Anyone who may be interested in placing a order for something from Lisa this Christmas may want to contact me sooner then later. Shes been pretty busy filling orders for a local store. and working on the house. But Im sure she would be happy to hook up some cool stuff for ya! I dont know the name of each of these but Lisa does.

    Wow. Those look like they've got potential to turn into something great. Can't wait to see the final result. Always pretty wild to see before and after pictures of exotic materials.

    How did these slabs get their colors, Randy? In the pics before the tooth looked quite bland/natural, now they're suddenly full of color. And the different slabs have different colors.
