Need a manly craft to pass the time?
Stone working? Check. Getting a good use out of your investment of power and hand tools? Check!
Whiskey stones are made out of either granite or soapstone and are used in place of ice cubes to cool down your quality liquer. After cooling the stone in the freezer they are invaluable to cool your drink to a perfect sipping temperature. Enjoy your whiskey, rum, or any other favorite drink...on the rocks :)
I'm hoping to be able to add homemade ice tongs and storage crate to this instrucatble soon....
Supplies for whiskey stones:
-Chop saw or hack saw
I made mine out of soapstone that I ordered off Ebay for a pretty fair price. Other options are to try construction surplus stores, or scraps from countertop factories.
UPDATE WARNING! : Use a respirator or face mask when using power tools to cut and shape the stone. The fine particles from soapstone, or any other type of stone, are terrible to have in your lungs.
