I first saw the turquoise inlay in the Rockler store in Arlington TX. I just had to do something with turquoise in it. I have made several boxes. The inlay is easier than you may think. I took larger stones and crushed them to make gravel/sand. I glued them in the pre-carved cracks and groves with gel supper glue. When the glue was dry I sanded 120,220,440 and then buffed with white buffing compound. Great Fun!
