I was requested to make a “bling holder”. When I go on walks, I pull out roots that are sticking out of the road side banks, so I am not possitive what kind of wood it is. On the first one, I epoxied it to a rock I found and finished with poly. Yes the epoxy holds. I dropped the first one and it broke. To my suprise, it was the rock that delaminated.
My 8 and 9 year old girls recieved the second two for Christmas. I could not find flat enough rocks, so I made a trip to a big box store and picked up two 12”x12” slate tiles for $1.49 each and flaked them into shape. I think they worked fairly well. Next I need to make small “bowls” for earings that can sit in the rock
