This stone is constructed of 3 layers of 1" foam sandwiched together with spray adhesive and 2 1/2" screws. I've had an old rubber doormat hanging around with a great filigree pattern on it that I've used for the top. The name and epitaph were routed out with a dremel. The book was carved from a block of 2" foam and was the most time consuming of all the parts to make. Let me know if you have any questions or comments.
