STONE INLAY IN WOODTURNINGS Stephen Hatcher
common and can be found in most rock shops locally or on-line. Options certainly exist in other sources of stone, but beware. Soapstone, with a hardness of 1-2, is fun to turn by itself and pretty, but is too soft for a durable inlay. Minerals harder than 6 are very dif cult to nish but that doesn't necessarily preclude their use.
