One of the features of the Orkney Islands are the large number of Neolithic sites, Cairns, Brochs, Rings and standing stones.
Whilst crossing the causeway to the Brough of Birsay beloved spotted this piece of stone that reminded her very much of the standing stones we had visited
Having brought it safely home My task is to make a suitable mount for it.
First step is to cut a recess into a block of wood, getting this to fit the stone is simply a matter of trial and error using a cutting wheel on the dremel
after a test fit or several
then a cut out of the basic shape, as drawn in by beloved
after a few hours of grinding and sanding (Again with the dremel) we have the base pretty complete
I think this will work well
This is My part finished for now, over to beloved for the base to be painted, I will share more once that is done and I am ready to complete the mounting
