Travertine countertops


I've gotten a good deal on some large polished travertine tiles that I plan to use as a countertops for my kitchen and bathrooms.

I know all the problems with this but I plan to go ahead anyway.

How do I round the exposed edges? Where can I find install instructions for this project?

Travertine countertops


travertine is pretty soft, at least mine was. typically you need diamond tooling. but, get a 4 1/2" angle grinder and a flap wheel, and see if that works.
