So, what do you think? Cut the flat part growing out from the base? Then how would you place the main part - sticking up like it is now or mounting it horizontally? I do not understand the growth pattern of this thing. Maybe when I got it I should have cut it off its base and placed it horizontally to begin with. I was hoping it would grow into a bowl shape but it is obviously not that type. The base is thick cement-like rock so I won't be able to cut off the whole flat ring like CoralReefer did with the chalice at the frag demo. Will try Dremel but might resort to chisel .
