Why cut the most recently posted stone? It looks very mountable in the position where it is placed.

The secret to a close fit will be in lowering the outer wall in places where, upon repeated fittings, the stone requires accommodation. This will create a meandering edge, which arguably looks more natural than a straight top-edge for a suiseki daiza.

Please, consider not cutting a suiseki which does not require a cut.

Hope that is understandable, Hung Tran.

Hi FRIENDS ,
Hi CHRIS COCHRANE ,
This stone is not cut ( and not cutting in future ... )
It's the stone used as the practice under the guidance of PETERBROD Teacher .
Thanks your article ( understandable )
Send to you a stone uncut following :

Is this a beautiful landscape ?
Bests Regards ,
HUNG - TRAN .

Hi Mr.SEBO , Mr. CHRIS COCHRANE , and Mr. PETERBROD ,
I ' m very glad to see you here ( IBC Forum )
Looking at your Pictures , i can easily imagine ... : DAIZA and STONE ... all are very nice .
However , I also found very difficult to implement ...
But I will try to do good DAIZA under the guidance of your pots and Mr. CHRIS COCHRANE 's Article .
Thanks for my DAIZA - TEACHERS .
Bests Regards ,

Hi Hung Tran... Thanks for sharing your stones. Mr. Sebo & Peter have provided very good illustrations. Your effort to craft a daiza matching the stone's natural bottom is commendable. For learning, I would choose a less difficult stone to mount until skilled at close fitting. Even easy stones to mount are challenging including stones which are cut.

I would recommend keeping all feet approximately the same size in footprint to lighten the image of the daiza. Some enthusiasts choose to vary width of feet according to a number of variables including the mass supported above the foot or its location relative to viewing from the front of the stone. The Japanese model is typically to use one size of foot (no wider than visual harmony requires) for all feet. Using feet of different width can be argued, if anyone wishes-- perhaps starting a new thread. You don't want too many feet in front-- my preference is three or five along the front edge unless the stone forces another number; again, this is arguable.
