Sorry but, what is "microplaning cheese"?  ???
A microplane is a brand of grater that comes in different sizes. The finer ones grate hard cheese leaving them in a light, fluffy state instead ground kind of like cornmeal. Also good for garlic, ginger and anything you'd want to zest. Very similar to a wood rasp plane.

I actually didn't realize microplane was a brand. I thought it was just a style of grater. Below is the one I used. While I didn't think the holes were smaller than my box grater, the result was very different. "Light and fluffy" as Jon said.

Way back Microplane was a woodworking tool and I think I have one somewhere in my shop. Think of a rasp. This is a little history.

A few pages back I posted about the oven I was getting, and needed a way to make an 18" stone sit level because of the lip of the oven rack. Turns out that California Pizza Stones sells what they call "Pizza Posts" which are small pieces of the stone material that you can use for raising a stone. So I got 5 of the smallest size and it seems like it should work great.

Pictures below of the posts, my level stone, and my almost finished new pizza corner.

I just turned the oven on for the first time to break it and the stone in. Sunday's bake I expect will be my usual 14" pie just so that I can get used to the new oven. But I'm excited to finally get a chance to bake an 18" pie.

Nice, Matt, congratulations! May have to change the name of your thread to Matts Pizza Corner.  ;D

Had no idea they had these

Me neither, was a happy surprise when I clicked on it. Screenshot below for anyone who doesn't want to search.

I got the smallest one ($2 each). They almost slip through my rack, but I turned them and seem to be holding.
