    Yesterday saw me smashing up stone to get some nice pieces.

    I took a diamond blade to one of my bigger bits and went all the way around. I then hit it with a hammer and bolster.

    I got some really special bits, but what was left on the main piece was just lovely.

    I plan now, to cut this off really carefully and plant it in a tank maybe 15cm. It's an instant mountain scape'

    A bit tricky to tell from this shot, but it is viewable from all sides and is extremely detailed.

    I've always said....'i'm a lucky scaper' :D

    That is such a fluke to have got that out of the rock. Will look awesome in a scape.

    I am currently at work and i don't finish until 8am boxing day morning! then i have 2 weeks off, i could spend the whole 2 weeks smashing rock and not come accross a piece like that, i think it is destined to win a comp and you are the man to make the most of it and show it off at it's best...Good luck mate, i'll look forward to seeing the photos :thumbup:

    Aww, cheers Mark :thumbup:

    I'm on the hunt for a nice bowl. I might even do it above water with 'outdoor' mosses as they are much 'finer' in appearance. Anything aquatic is just too big.
