Winter's Coming!

When a chill begins slowly creeping in, I step up my cabbing. I can't cab when it gets cold. I use a dopping stick to hold my cab while I am cutting it. I use a hardened wax to hold the stone onto the stick. The wax does not like the cold and my fingers do not like cold water. This year, I may try using glue to hold the stone. We'll see.
