So I decided to take Jon's advice and mount my stones to some granite bases. The granite I used is called "black riverbed", the dimensions are 9"x3 1/4"x3/4". Here's a photo![/IMG]
Nice job..looks great; but why not just use a stone holder?
I've heard of the 5k's being the main cracker in the Chosera line up but I've heard of a few others as well. I would strongly advise anyone buying Choseras to purchase only stones on bases OR mount them like this before use. These stones are too expensive to have them fall apart on you.
Nice bases here HC! :thumbsup:
I always soak the stones in room temp water for about 10 to 15 mins, I then use the stones on a flat surface and let them dry out at room temp for a couple of days. When I'm confident that they are dry I would store them in their original box. I'm not sure what I've been doing wrong, if anything at all but hopefully this should eliminate any future cracking!
This is exactly how I have been caring for my Choseras, haven't had a problem yet, though they are still young. Luckily there is a kitchen designer in the family who can probably get me some granite scraps, I can't afford the risk of cracking a chosera.
Did you have the supplier cut the granite for you?
