Nice article but I have to take issue with item #3, 'softening' stone edges. I know what you mean - you want the edges to be less sharp. Rounded edges are indeed safer than sharp edges, but the stone is just as hard. You are less likely to cut yourself on a rounded edge, but both types of edges are equally hard.
