Back in June, Evergreen Faculty member, artist and all around great guy Bob Leverich and I ventured down to his secret stone cutting area to cut down several medium sized litho stones that had been broken by students over the years. We carefully measured the pieces into the largest usable shapes and sizes and spent the day slowly sawing and beveling the stones back into shape. Cutting stone is very difficult, even for relatively soft Bavarian limestone. Bob is one strong dude! I was sneezing talc from my nose for days.
