Awesome work!  How many years of practice does it have to take to be able to do something this good?  Simply awesome.  I'm new at this so this is really amazing to me. Thanks for sharing this!  ura

1. With the glass that I use to grind the pieces flat I move the agate or Basenite around to try and utilize as much of the surface of the glass as possible. Each sheet of glass is good for about 10 cabs. I get scraps from the local hardware store to cut up into smaller pieces for this operation.
2. I have been making cabs and such since 1958, doublets and triplets probably only 35 years or so.
