You are all homing in to it, I didn't think it would last too long. Still looking for the first use in the list given.

Sandstone yes,
Herb grinder, one use
Wilma, the link is relevant
Wine chiller, no
Meat tenderizer, another use

Well it is quite easy, and enough clues have been given to find what it is. Having found it, all I need is the first use given in the list. Of course that could be reasonably guessed anyway.

Yoo hoo

Carlos posted elsewhere that he was going on a 4-day kayak trip - probably won't surface again until Tuesday night or Wednesday.

OK, I am back. Sorry for the delay but there was no internet, no TV, no phone or any other modern convenience, unless you count down sleeping bags and tents, modern conveniences on the island I was camping on.

Now swamped at work but here is something to keep the rest of you busy. What is this or these as the case may be:

Hmmm... I am going to guess that they are separators for stacking expensive glasses, one within another. If one had, say, cut crystal highball glasses and limited shelf space, one might use these liners to prevent the rim of one glass from chipping when another glass is inserted into it.

No guesses? well it's hint time then. Angela was really, really close, just not about glass.
