Using the rock of your choice, American Stonecraft will custom craft a Coaster, Charcuterie Board, Trivet or Bowlder especially for you! Imagine the reaction on the face of your recipient when they learn that not only did you get them a beautiful object that they can treasure for generations to come, but that it was sourced from a place with sentimental meaning and attachment.
Moving away and want to help remember the treasured times? A favorite getaway where you achieve serenity? A place where she said “Yes!”? All can be preserved forever, as a functional sculpture that fits into a dining room, kitchen, living room, bathroom, or bedroom.
Part 1 (of 2) is an up-front charge regardless of how many items you order. This price varies by what state you live in or if you drop off the stone; choose your desired option when adding the item to your cart. The box we’ll mail you has a return label that can be dropped off at any UPS Store. The shipping option covers up to 60 lbs of original rock(s). All you need is newspaper to cushion your stone in the box, and packing tape. Make sure it doesn’t wiggle! Read more information here to prepare for this part.
This upfront fee also covers the shipping cost of ALL finished pieces once they are ready to leave our workshop, regardless of how you got the stones here initially. One item or many, you might want to consider stocking up for the whole family!
All custom sourcing orders include a custom 1″ x 3″ section on the back of the stone for you to label it however you choose with permanent ink. The standard option for marking stones is with ink, but Custom Engraving is also available as an upgrade. Another upgrade is to add a Custom Hanging bracket to the back of one or all of the pieces. This sits lower than the silicon feet of a Food Slab, but it adds an additional storage option of hanging an item on the wall when not in direct service.
After payment of Part 1, we will exchange emails to view your potential rock selection(s) and help you select the right rock for what you want us to make. You can also text or call at (978) 254-7625. (Business hours please)
Once we have had a chance to begin cutting your rock in our workshop, Part 2 (of 2) is determined based on the exact size and type of product that can be crafted from your rock. The cost of Part 2 is determined by quantity, type, and size of items you order. You can view the price list in third photos in the product carousel above for reference. We will email an invoice once the project is complete and we calculate what was possible. For example, you may want 4 Food Slabs, but we won’t know the final size until we finish making them.
American Stonecraft ® is a Studio and Massachusetts Benefit Corporation that tells the story of places through hand-gathered stones sustainably harvested from working farms, or from a place you love. We are honored that many recipients of custom sourced goods are brought to tears by the elegance and appropriateness of this beautiful and sentimental gift.
Perhaps sneak a rock for a stack of coasters the next time you have a perfect memory that you want to memorialize forever? If you want to use a larger stone, a simple wooden ramp is a great way to roll a heavy stone into your vehicle compared to simply hoisting it off the ground with your hands. Seem too good to be true? It is the best offer in gift giving, hands down!
