rocks in bench top.
You can see what I've been doing today, fitting the rocks into the bench top.
All that red stuff on the rock in the photo above is lip stick. You rub the lip stick on the rock, then nestle the rock into a recess cut in the top. The lip stick rubs off onto the wood in spots that need shaving in order for the rock to fit.
Now the bench is ready for final sanding and the application of the oil finish. I will be careful to avoid getting Danish oil in the recesses where the rocks fit, so it will not interfere with the bond of the epoxy glue.
