Casting project

I have quite a few things on my list which I'd like to make.  Many of the items involve casting and so I started by slicing a chunk of soapstone into pieces.  I hadn't tried using ta miter saw before.  Worked rather nice.  The saw has very small teeth and didn't scar the stone as much as I thought it might.  With very little sanding the surface should smooth out nicely. 





















I kept all the dust from the sawing for more future experiments in pounce to be done later…
