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.gene

Thanks JimYou 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 TambotiYes 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 MolanIt 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.
