    Ah.
    Shame it takes quite so long as it seemed like it might be quite a nice way to spend some free time but the end result must be a satisfying thing to use!
    I suppose there's no rush, though. There are always other picks which can be used as the stone is being crafted.

    Hello Pippy.

    It also depends on density of the gravel. As with everything in life: the better ones are the hardest to work with.

    Like this one...

    I put it into a vice to let it split where it wants to. It didn`t wanted to split at all. It took very long until I could find the right position for it in the vice, that applied pressure split it.

    And even now, it is like impossible to file:

    But it looks very nice. :)

    I'm unclear as to how you held the stone while working it?


    Between teeth. :)

    No. Kidding. I laid it on the marble plate that has sanding papers taped on.

    Nice workmanship. Are they slippery or hard to hold onto?

    Sort of gives new meaning to "rock" music [biggrin]


    Thank You! :)

    The key is to not to polish them the proper way of using gradually finer papers. After filing, I have only used the 2000-grit wet paper on it. This makes it shiny, but leaves tiny surface imperfections for proper grip.

    Nice job, Bence!

    How long did it take, start to finish, would you reckon?

    Pip.


    Hello Pippy! Thank You.

    It takes around 10 hours to finish, but I wasn`t able to work more than an hour a day on it. Exhausting job.

    Bence.
