I had this polished rock and wanted to incorporate it into some lumber
and came up with this after viewing Suiseki work from Hybridwoodworkers
fine work.
The feet are maple and I’m uncertain of the lumber and type of polished
rock that’s in there. It was a fun build and it’s sealed with shellac.
Thanks for the inspiration Hybrid!
PI are squared was made from maple and walnut and it’s a great way
to use up some off fall from other projects.
Thanks to all LumberJocks for their friendly advice on joinery, finishing,
and the sharing of their experiences and ideas, all of which were used
to make these projects!

Good stuff, the rock is really wild. Are the pi functional or just decorative?

Very nice, I like both the rock and the woodwork. Well done.

Thanks Shane.
PI is for what ever you want them to be my friend. I sketch it on paper
and then make them as material allows.
The next set may be with the PHI scale 1.618 as in the sketch:

The wood on top looks like padauk to me. The stone, I don’t know, but it is very nice, good job!

Thanks for your response to my question about inlaying stone in a box lid. Your piece illustrated exactly what I was trying to envision re: blending the square edge of the routed inlay recess with the curved edge of the stone cabochon.

In your piece it appears that you blended the edge of the wood with a small radius and dropped the stone into the recess area. I think that’s the approach I’ll use in my initial pieces.
Thanks again for the tip.
