I see Clay has a nice base here, from one of his old videos.



Must be a special order? ;)

Sorry if I offended with the stoneHINGE. No harm ment. And I decided I needed to know what a "henge" is, so I learned something--thanks.

There's a company that sells those bases . . . . I've seen it on line . . . For sharpening station or flattening stones.

Stonehinge is quite clever, not offended at all. ;)

Very nice Billy, you are a very much a outside the box thinker.

I like the stones standing up on the pegs.

A peg board for the stones to stand up, is a good idea. When my stones are wet from use or cleaning I stand them up to dry, have always worried if they get knocked over they might break. I see them falling like dominoes in a bad dream. :ohmy: A peg board would make them easy to move around and safe while they dry, before I store them.

Thanks for sharing the idea,
- James

So.... Stonehenge is actually God's WEPS? Finally we know what that thing is! ;)

Good to see your serious side Mark. ;)

Some believe these stones have magic powers also!

That's an understatement :-). Stonehenge is thought to originally have been erected as a shrine where the Druids performed their secret religious ceremonies.

And even nowadays it's a place where a group of weird women, who call themselves witches, perform dancing ceremonies when it's full moon.

I thought they had inspired you, Chris ;-).

A bit OT, but that is where we have been going anyway...
:)
I have been fascinated by Stonehenge for a long time, as well as Arthurian legend and Galic things in general. I have read quite a bit on this, but not for years. This topic made me think to consult the Great Oracle (Google) to see what was out there.

I found some articles that talk about some of the various theories on the origins of Stonehenge:

www.time.com/time/world/article/0,8599,1886661,00.html

www.britannia.com/history/h7.html

"The question of who built Stonehenge is largely unanswered, even today. The monument's construction has been attributed to many ancient peoples throughout the years, but the most captivating and enduring attribution has been to the Druids. This erroneous connection was first made around 3 centuries ago by the antiquary, John Aubrey. Julius Caesar and other Roman writers told of a Celtic priesthood who flourished around the time of their first conquest (55 BC). By this time, though, the stones had been standing for 2,000 years, and were, perhaps, already in a ruined condition. Besides, the Druids worshipped in forest temples and had no need for stone structures."

Surely this does not relate to ergonomics, but it is interesting.

Billy,

I think the saying goes -- If you stand in the same place long enough they will put a Starbucks there. I am not sure how to word this for Apple.

Are there little pegs for the stone to stand on or are they just placed there? That would be a good idea to hold the stones during use (maybe not permanent storage).

As far as Stonehinge goes, would those rock be wet or dry stones? In England it rains a fair amount so it could be either.

Yes, it seems I am always inspired by weird women! :P:

It is, how did they erect Stonehenge Phil?

Short lengths of 6mm dowel, I drilled the holes using a "dowel jig", so they are pefectly vertical.

Before it was Stonehinge, there was a forest!

To get a forest, I had to dig holes!


These could be stainless steel rod in a stone base with a gold plated WEPS. ;)

I didn't glue anything, as there is no need!

With slave labor, and not worrying about how it effected any of the individual participants, either short term, nor long term... or what they really liked to do...nor how "pretty" they thought the stones were! I doubt if they worried much about their potential for carpal tunnel syndrome, or what made them happy, or how the construction affected their ability to exist in a happy, healthy state once they dropped dead from exhaustion.. I have an idea, that if they had any clue about Ergonomics, they did not care...I think that they were real goal oriented, no room for whiners.

Only judging by results.

It would never happen today... we are a society of whiners... If we don't get insant gratification, we just stop working and bitch..
"snipe" ???
