Let the games begin! I finished second cut and started tumbling yesterday.
When I first heard about tumbling stones I had a visual image of rocks inside some kind of drum bouncing around and beating each other senseless. First of all, I'm pretty sure rocks don't have any sense. Secondly, my tumbler has no drum of any kind. The tumbling action is created through vibration, and the stones slowly rotate against each other. So the tumbling action is more like the episode of the Carol Burnett Show, where Tim Conway as the old man falls down the stairs in super slow motion. But not nearly so funny, and for a much longer duration.
If you look closely you can see my dalmatian Dalmatian in the tumbler.
