Description
Lesson 7 brings us to the hexagon, and a new concept, the barion. Barions cut a circular cone (P1), then squash it into a non-circular outline (G1) with "adapter faces" (P2). This lesson teaches how to cut a geometric barion, and the "Princess" style of cutting multiple facets into a corner (C1 - C3). Lesson rules: cut in morganite, with no size restriction
