I've also seen this process used to increase shine.This process will make almost any stone that has been polished, to shine more, whether soft, medium, or hard.Although, what caught my eye, was your reference to jade, as being a "soft" stone. When carving most types of jade, you are usually required to use diamond impregnated grinding bits, and tools. And the way you actually get jade to polish to a high shine, is to heat the surface molecules to a point that they will actually begin to slightly melt, or flow. This would not be necessary in a "soft" stone.
Getting Started With Glue
Would plywood door skins work well for this project? I think they're 1/8" or 3/16", 3-ply, if not mistaken. To allow the the door skin pieces to be easily attached, you could use multiple "partial" cuts through the side being attached to the frame. The best spacing for these cuts would take a little bit of figuring. I would think these "relief" cuts, would greatly assist in bending the door skin pieces to fit your framework. This method would also give you a "smooth" seat, with no segments. Enjoyed your article. Now, how about an "adult" version?

Even if you kept measurements in tsp./Tbs./oz. would be great. Being user "friendly" is always a plus.By the way, they really look delicious!

I thought the same thing on the end pieces, and the one continuous twine. I was thinking maybe every other row. (?) Maybe use leather instead of twine. Might be a little tougher, and I think I might like the look of leather better.Also like your idea of routing the edges.

All you're getting with salt, is it's making your ice melt. This process is what makes your ice cream recipe freeze. Not sure what the thermal reaction is, but it works.
British or not, if you feel the need to explain, it might not be that humorous.
I'm going to try and make this out of an .030 ridged vinyl material, and use some type of velcro for fastening together. The velcro might allow me to make some "size" adjustments for different sizes of t-shirts, etc. I'm also going to radius the corners on each panel, to reduce the potential for snagging the shirt material. Also, decided to try and make it a "six" panel, using the center panel dimensions for each panel. A six panel, if assembled and hinged correctly, would make it easier to store away. When folded down, it would probably fit nicely in a standard dresser drawer.
I guessing, soaking both sides of the material wouldn't be a bad approach.
Yah, buy a sand blaster.
