How To Make a Cabochon
by Paul W. Cinnamon

There are about as many procedures used to cut cabochons as
there are cutters. In general, I believe whatever procedures work
best for you represents the proper procedures for you to use. For
those who have never cut a cab, or who are not entirely satisfied
with the results they are obtaining, I will describe some procedures
that may assist you. They should give you a good base from which
to develop your individual style. The procedures I am going to
describe do not address the problems presented in cutting special
shapes, and materials that may require special equipment. These
include some free form cabs, most fire agate, and doublets and
triplets. I may attempt to cover procedures for some of these in
the future.
