The owner wanted somthing simple and this is what I ended up with. This was the first attempt at marble, cutting and bull nosing the edges then repolishing them. It was fun and a learning experience.

Nice work JMHR. It looks great, with a nice mantel and good colors.

How does one go about cutting marble, bull nosing the edges, and re-polishing it? Maybe you can blog about it. It would be nice to learn how its done.

Very nice.
As a woodworker to work with stone is a very nice experience. I enjoyed working with marble on our bathrooms. It will slow you down, you can not work stone fast.

In the picture above I installed two counter tops I bought at Lowe’s cut then to size and tried to hide the seam in the middle.

Thanks for the post.
