Nice job! Very elegant, in a rustic sort of way.

Cool. how did you make the textured surface on the sides and bottom? I haven't seen anything like it before. Definitely rustic.

Nice one, is that cabinet liner that you are using under the stone?

Thanks guys :)
Actually i have seen that finish on one of Yoshikanes Wa handles in his workshop, i thought it looked very cool and asked him how he did that, it was just done on stone weel, i have a small one of those with belt sander so i did it on that :D
Under the stone i doble taped some of silicone mats to hold stone stable, you can replace them at any time.
Kauri woos looks much better in the person have a bit 3d to it with very golden color.
I need to buy something for the feet and draw some stone kanji on the button of the base then i am done :D
