Step 1: Pick Out the Rock

This is the critical part. Pick a rock that is flat on one side(bottom) and the rest is just your own personal taste. I like this one because of the potential for a handle.

Step 2: Sculpting the Boulder

Tools:
Big hammer drill
3-9/16" core bit
1" drill bit
One inch chisel
Vegetable oil
Budweiser

As you can tell, this was all hilti. Drill, chisel, repeat. That is the hole.
I wanted a handle hole. So I laid it on its side and made one and a half holes. Yes, I broke the handle off trying to be cute. Nothing a little gorilla glue can't fix

Step 3: Gluing the Handle Together

Putting the handle back on.
If you have never used gorilla glue before, then, I will testify for it. I have fixed a lot of stuff with it. And now I can add granite to the list. Just remember it swells. Use clamps in every direction or it will make a huge mess.

Step 4: Cleaning and Oiling

I don't have any pics for this part. I washed it first with trisodiumphosphate. Then soaked it in dish washing soap. Then rinsed with water
After all the cleaning I massaged in a granite sealer. Last rubbed with vegetable oil. And rinsed clean.

Step 5: First Beer

I really expected to pour this half down my shirt. But by accident got a really good rim on one side. I don't know if I drank it fast because it was a hot august day or I had a twenty pound rock above my head. Either way it turned out pretty good.

Step 6: Voiala

I think Fred Flintstone would give an approval on this.

    Suggestion: vegetable oils, any type, will become rancid over time. Ever get a whiff of that? Not nice and very difficult to remove. Use unscented mineral oil, generic is very cheap and has many other uses in kitchen. Salad bowls, cutting boards, etc. That expensive cutting board oil is mineral oil: odorless, colorless, tasteless.
