This 30 second video shows elements of the monument design process.

A memorial can tell a person's life story in many ways: through the words carved into it, through its location, and through the form it takes. Custom carved memorials are beautiful and unique. They help to capture the story of a lifetime. This video shows brief snippets from the process of carving a custom monument.

Stone is polished by hours of work by a skilled craftsman. There is no "coating" that is applied. The beautiful, nearly permanent shine on memorials is created by a series of diamond impregnated pads, water, and a skilled craftsman. If the polishing process is done incorrectly, the stone can overheat causing the stone surface to prematurely crumble.
