Brian Post demonstrates some trimming and dressing techniques to use after splitting with feathers and wedges (aka wedges and shims). A variety of tools are used to quickly remove quarry marks, soften drill holes, soften sharp edges, and remove drill hole marks entirely.
This video shows some of our top sellers and some tools with more specific purposes. We are still actively shipping tools, so place your order and enjoy shaping some stone while also helping the Stone Trust manage its tight cash flow at this time of COVID-19. (Note: The Stone Trust does not sell hammer drills or bits, which are available from many tool dealers and hardware stores.)
There are many more techniques and tricks to working granite and improving speed and accuracy. You can try out drilling in our next 2.50 Intro to Stone Shaping Workshop offered on July 18th. Brian Post will be one of the instructors.
Thanks to professional member TJ Mora for letting us use his stone for this demonstration as well as taking the video.
