Probably won't get any views/comments and that's fine. I found it interesting because in 1997 I worked for a Chinese dude who imported Chinese granite. A lot of headstones; some absolutely gorgeous, the entire spectrum of colors granite-wise; some tiny and (relatively) insignificant.
Some didn't survive the trip unscathed. Chips were common (mainly from the nails they used in the shitty boxing), so every once in a while a 10k dollar pre-ordered stone would have to be repaired.
Watching this video reminded me of the time I was given the chance to repair a 6k $ headstone. Black, sparkly granite. With one minor flaw, about the size of a baby's fingertip at the apex. The fix is harder than it sounds. You gotta grind that shit way down, the entire thing. I spent a full day repairing it, grinding, grinding, GRINDING, smoothing smoothing smoothing, endless time with the polish & buffing.
The boss was happy with the results.
I never did it again. Boring fucking work (IE, I sucked at it, and it took 3 hours too long)!! I went directly back to warehouse/shipping. What did I need with an extra 3 bucks an hour.
