Stone finishing, also called stoning, refines all surfaces of the work piece. When each phase of stoning is completed all surfaces should have the same uniform surface. Stone finishing is done with a profiler. To get the best possible finish in the least amount of time stoning should always be done in the following order, starting with the deepest area and working out.
- Stone all corners and detail such as radii.
- Stone all horizontal surfaces.
- Stone all vertical surfaces.
All surfaces must be done before changing to a finer grit.
