    Thank you everyone for your kind words.

    No, she didn't see, or smell, me destroying her bone. She lives with my girlfriend, and is technically her dog, but don't tell either of them that! I love that dog like she is my own. Knowing the dog's personality, she would be happy that the bone went to good use, and that there's a better one coming her way. (gotta reward her generosity!)

    Hal, I'm sure that could be done! It could be tricky though, depending on the size of the dots, and the hardness of the bone. First, I would make some small square blanks using the method above. Then chuck the blanks into drill press, spin at low speed and use sandpaper on it (kind of like a vertical lathe). Hmm....I'm almost out of side-dot material too...I just may have to try this tonight!

    Kinda scary there are so many places willing to supply bone though...

    it is a bit creepy, isn't it? "you're sure you don't want our... special bone stock? we'll need some notice and an alibi."

    dude, if you're prepared to give this a go (as i'm totally lost with tools, i'm afraid, i'm a bit of a ponce like that) then i'd be happy to reimburse. obviously i'll understand if that sounds like a tall order though.

    i'd be fascinated to know if you think it'd work.

    One needs to be careful who, and how, they ask for bone.

    I can give it a try tonight. What diameter would you prefer?

    That's very kind of you to offer reimbursement. No worries though, it shouldn't take much time to make. If it works, that's payment enough for me!

    well i've been asking companies for 12 poles of goat bone, about 5mm deep by almost 2mm across, but i'm swayed by advice really. what do you reckon?

    by the way, the goat is simply for necro kudos.

    nekrudos.

    2 mm diameter is going to be a challenge because bone is relatively brittle, but, I like a challenge!

    I'm not sure how well it would go trying to glue in 5 mm long segments, one at a time. I can imagine glueing my fingers together while working with such a small piece. I usually drill the hole, put a drop of super glue in the hole, insert the material, let the glue dry for 30 seconds, cut off the excess, repeat. A serated knife, thin hacksaw blade, or a dremel-type cutting disk would probably cut it quite easily. I'll try a couple of methods for you.

    Would cow bone still achieve appropriate necro kudos?

    the thing is - it's a total approximation on my side for the depth. i'm just going off what i imagined it to be really.

    well cow would be cool, i mean obviously the ideal would be goat if at all possible.

    thank you for this, by the way.
