i got it all cut out to the 4 inch mark,i have about 4 hours in it.
Take it a step further! Make it interactive.

Re: Hollowing Out Granite

I must be too much of a traditionalist. Just don't agree with heading to the graveyard and seeing a tv screen of grandma on a headstone.

Re: Hollowing Out Granite

I wish I had more recordings/ pictures of my dad. I had a few voicemails but fn sprint fd up my phone and lost them trying to update my interface. I still want to punch that fn little tech fk in face for that especially after I told him what was up. I know I should have backed it up.

Off topic I know.

After letting your idea stew for awhile I am leaning towards agreeing with kent. Perhaps morbid. Maybe selling video diaries would be a better idea. I would pay anything to have one now, too late

Re: Hollowing Out Granite

i think this could be marketed not only to headstone buyers,but tourism,schools,chamber of commerce.a whole slew of things.

i know i have 4 hours in this stone,but as we learn,and perfect this,it will go faster.

i think this is a good idea.there are many people who like the history that can be found in a graveyard.imagine being able to walk up to a grave of joe blow,someone you may of never heard about,and watching a video of his life story.
he already has a order for a $10,000 stone.


life is short,do your masonry naked!!
