Ready to drill holes

I got the limb 100% sanded, my husband is inlaying turquoise in the base, next we will drill the holes for the cord.

The dark spot you can see on the base is where we applied sanding sealer, there is a bit of rot so this helps harden the wood and it also keeps the glue from staining the wood when we inlay the turquoise.









That,s got to be the most unique lamp on the planet and maybe beyond.

Turquoise inlay in the lamp

Here are progressive pictures as I am inlaying turquoise in the lamp.



















I was wondering how you inlay the turquoise do you hand carve it or use a router or do you place it in natural defects.The turquoise almost seems powder form, It must be plentiful in your area.
