273368 scottg <scottg@s...> 2021‑04‑06 Re: Box or Case for Large Oilstone
Here's my take on the subject.
   I like clearance for mine so I can flatten the backs and not have 
knuckle dragging trouble.
The bevel counts but its really all about the back.

  I like to clamp it securely in a vise so I can put some pressure on 
and not have to chase it around.

   So I make my boxes with a thick bottom. A 2X4 is enough.
The sides come up only about 1/4" . Just enough to trap the stone.

   Lid is optional, but it keeps the dirt off.

Oh and dished stones? I just pick a spot of relative flat cement and 
plop on down with a glass of water.
Last time it was my back porch step. There was a small area of slight 
roughness. (the cement finisher was not that bad, but still left a bit 
to be desired lol)
  In about 10 minutes I got a flat stone and slightly smoother cement.
yours scott
