    Welcome back John, I as well can’t wait to see the finished product! What exactly is faux-bone? Did you mold it?

    Thanks, ladies, for your kind comments.

    Faux bone is a plastic. Cut with jeweler’s saw, shape with coarse and fine files, or with miniature sanding drums, wet sandpaper, 230 thru 600 grit. Versatile material. can be heated, bent, twisted, formed.

    So sorry to learn of all the flooding you have been through. It must have been a real job trying to get things dried out – and get back to some kind of normalacy. Glad to see you posting again. Do hope all is well.

    Read about faux bone several years ago… sounds so cool, I’ll probably get around to working with it someday… meanwhile, I like what you’ve done with it!
