"Don't try this at home"!

Okay, I'm an inpatient tumbler!lol The only thing that the grit affected today was my coffee when I opened the barrel and a bunch of grit flew into the best cuppa' joe I'd ever made!!

There's absolutely no change after several hours of tumbling... I did get a response I noticed a few minutes ago, which prompted me to write in the blog. I think it might work and I'm excited to give it a go! Here's the post;

I'd probably just tumble with relatively fine (white) sand or aluminum oxide sandblasting media. I wouldn't use silicon carbide as it may stain the antler. I'd check the results every 15 minutes or so just to be safe.
I actually have some aluminum oxide that I was going to use to sandblast - another creative idea that went by the wayside! lol It sounds like it might work...

On another note about experimenting - I've found that I cannot keep going on 3 - 4 hours of sleep and just woke up from a lengthy nap! ugh There's just so much to do and experience! Sleeping has become something I dread as I hate to miss out on the hours that I could be doing something. But my body and mind don't agree and I've decided that falling asleep at the computer or saw is more wasteful, than getting my "8"! That was not a good experiment!lol

Well, will let ya know what happens with the aluminum oxide tomorrow - many thanks to NicholasandFelice for that very helpful idea! They've got a pretty sweet shop too! Click on their name to check them out =D

As always, thanks for "stopping by the shop!"
