Here's one:
Why not save it for a marker on your

Those you buy from Grizzly etc already are called "chinese tombstones".

Although in truth, they are generally quite a bit better than that. At least I have two, and they blue up together just fine. Bought at different times, from different sources, and they are different sizes, so random, not related.

I picked up a 36x48x6 for a hundred dollar bill. I have no room in the shop so I use it as a prep table by the bar b que.
996 pounds, It makes for a solid table.

You can also do your marking out while eating a burger, is ketchup any good for marking out?
I'm biased so it seems like a waste of table, you need a bigger shop!

LOL - I like that...

You could use it as a cool surface in the larder and forgo a refrigerator...

Funny! I always suspected these things came from graveyards, others must have had the same idea. If you buy one, the text goes underneath.

I have one that is 96" x 48" x 10" thick that I purchased from work. It even came on a steel stand. I have said that it could be use to cover the entire casket and not just the tombstone. No one is going to remove it once it is on the ground. I think it weighs close to 4500 pounds. Sure make a good table to build stuff on.
