INDEX: February 2013

Our February issue follows on the heels of StonExpo and World of Concrete shows. Thanks to all our readers who stopped by to say hello. We have two great feature stories this issue, both related to dimensional stone masonry, and explore topics like the difference between concrete dyes and stains, and how to get the best out of your polishing diamonds. We hope our readers make good use of the information in this issue – making fabrication safer and more productive through the information we publish is a mission we take seriously. Don’t miss the good advice and tips from our industry experts each issue, and let us know when you like a story or simply agree or disagree with the author.  – L.H.
