Don't set this on your toe, the granite is 1 1/2 thick.
My son works for a business that tears down, builds up and repairs old barns/buildings. A few years ago, he brought to my shop, 4 pieces of oak fall off from a covered bridge they were building. He also brought a chunk of fall off granite from he picked up somewhere. He wanted me to help him build a coffee table for his better half. After moving it around the shop for a year from one spot to the next, I decided to put it together for them (and me). The lumber, roughly 3 1/2 x 5 1/2, was rough cut so I first had to create a flat side and square it up with the planer and jointer. The rest of the oak came from the local box store and are mortise and tennoned together. The granite was cut slightly out of square, probably to fit the area the good piece was going, so I had to square that up too. Fun project and I no longer have to move the pieces around.
"Have been a return customer for a number of years, and a recent experience has really cemented that bond for me. After using my Rockler lighted magnifying lens for a few months, one of the wires from the battery pack came loose. When I contacted Customer Service to inquire about sending the unit back, they instead sent me a brand new one - no questions asked, no return expected, no charge whatsoever. This simple step - coupled with top quality, innovative products - ensured my repeat business more than any other advertising technique or gimmick could ever do.
Keep up the good work, Rockler!" -
