A good use for the coffee bean

The Roving Reporter dropped in at the Ballarat Wood Show, and having already been playing with Solid Solutions 606 clear resin, he was inspired (again) by Brendan Stemp’s concepts and techniques and gave it a go.

Came up with the best use I’ve seen for a coffee bean. Some people burn them, grind them, soak them in boiling water and drink the result.

I prefer to see this alternate use!

Pretty cool! And definitely inspired by Brendan’s creations- the ring containing the beans is clear – you can see all the way through as it has been turned to the point the resin (originally sitting in a channel) has been turned from both sides leaving a clear ring with the embedded items trapped within.

Now I’m definitely wanting to try it for myself.
