Cut stones
Rob D. Brodman

Cut stones

Use a chisel and mallet to break stones into smaller pieces (wear goggles).

Place a stone atop a board, scrape a line on stone where you want to make cut, gently strike the chisel there to make a ⅛-in.-deep depression, then pound the stone hard until it breaks.
