    Synthetic Aoto is going bye-bye

    After some consideration I've decided to drop this stone from my site. I'll keep it listed for a few more days to give people a chance to get one before it's gone.



    XL Synthetic Aoto

    L Synthetic Aoto

    What was the deciding factor? I've always wondered about this stone.

    I feel kinda cruddy selling this stone, even with my strong warnings, because it's just too likely to cause the customer problems - why sell something that could leave a bad taste in the customer's mouth?

    Funny thing though is that I'll re-order one for myself if mine breaks or gets too thin (it's an XL that's 1/2" thick now).

    Did you lacquer the sides and bottom? I just picked up a large one and am very nervous about breaking it. Tips?

    I'd consider glueing it to a base - wood, granite or even Corian.
    I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.

    I'd use an epoxy like Devcon 2 Ton, or at least something that's waterproof. Lacquering the sides probably isn't necessary, but won't hurt any.

    I'm going to let Dave answer that one, if he doesn't mind.
