O Mio Marble

I feel like I’m in good hands with my marble guys. In the business for over 30 years, they know what they’re doing. The template for the counter was made on Tuesday. Made of thin plywood, measured and cut into place, it took over two hours, carefully taking into account the placement of the sink, faucet and cooktop. I saw the trace on the slab yesterday, drawn out in pencil, and then taped out for photographic purposes. It’s going to be great.

The only not so great thing is that the L-shaped counter can’t be done in one piece, due to installation. It will be cutout as one piece, but then cut into two and matched in placement, like matching up the stripes of a suit. My cabinetmaker told me that they were so good, I probably wouldn’t notice the seam, I better not.

They are also making little marble shelves in the recesses where there used to be makeshift shelves above the stove and in the L corner. A small detail that I forgot about in the plan until the template maker came over. He understood that the shelves are to be level with the backsplash and not to sit on top of it, requiring a beveled edge fit. Now that’s going to be great.
