Need to split a giant rock in half?

It s surprisingly easy.

Once you get your hands on the tools, all you need to do is drill some holes into the stone, stick some wedges in, and then hammer at the wedges to crack it open.

If you do it right, it splits right in half.

This Old House explains this method and other ways to shape stones.

Just watch your thumbs.
