Awesome. Did you use anything in the center to reduce the amount of alumilite required. I've been wondering what to do with the big chunks of Cholla I have.

Do to the original shape of the cactus I was not able to use anything in the center of this casting. I typically try to whenever possible.

This popped up in the random photos on the front page. I had to click on it and take another look. A year ago I had this to say about it.
