I bought this slab from a gentleman whose father was a renowned bonsai master. He inherited pots and supplies from his father after his dad passed away but is not knowledgeable about what he has. I had been looking for a large slab for a bald cypress forest and this was perfect - 36” wide - not to mention that supposedly the man’s father hand made the slab and I thought it would be very cool to use a slab hand made by a renowned bonsai master.
My concern is that the slab has no drainage holes. I have always drilled holes in stone slabs with masonry bits and a hammer drill so as to provide drainage but am afraid to do so on this slab without some idea as to what it is made of. My fear is that I may break off a chunk in drilling.
So, I thought I would ask some of you who may be knowledgeable about hand made slabs in the hopes that by looking at the photos I’ve posted you can provide some thoughts and insight. Can I drill holes, should I drill holes, how should I drill holes, etc.
Thanks in advance.
