Kiefer you’ve really upped the ante with these. Granite! They must have a nice weight and feel.
How to use? Try to pick up a grain of rice. Just one. Then use a fork.

Thanks Jim
You bet it just takes imagination to use up those little scraps .

Thanks Pete
But the credit for the pics and display goes to my wonderful wife !
In my pics you would see sawdust and tools .LOL

Thanks Gene
Not granite but artificial granite much lighter .
Practise makes perfect .

Thanks Tamboti
Yes we have all we need which is not much but a bowl and plate or tray would be nice .

Thanks Jay
They turned out good and I feel they have a certain amount of elegance .

Thanks Molan
It is something like Corian I am using not real granite and easier to work .
I drilled a hole into the artificial stone and cut a round tenon onto the wooden part and glued with Gorilla glue .
The complete blank was then shaped with hand plane and belt sander etc.
