can a typical stone fabrication shop make this custom beveled piece

One of the problems I'm trying to solve with a new kitchen countertop and backsplash is easier cleanup of grease behind the cooktop. I've always found it a chore to keep that area behind the stove clean.

With easy cleanup in mind, I want to avoid a 90-degree angle where the counter meets the backsplash. I'd like to install a beveled insert there, as in the attached picture. The drawing shows a 2cm slab beveled to 8mm where it meets the wall tile; a 3cm slab tapered to 12mm would also work.

I don't have any experience working with stone, and don't know what margin-of-error and accuracy is reasonable to expect. I would think that the bevel could be applied to the edge of a stone slab, and then polished, and then cut off the slab. The insert has to match the thickness of the countertop and whatever we choose for the wall. If there's any lippage there, the whole purpose is defeated.

Can a typical skilled stone fabrication shop apply the bevel and then cut the profile from the slab accurately enough for this approach to be viable?

Any good shop can make anything you want.


Ren: Now listen, Cadet. I've got a job for you. See this button? Ren: Don't touch it! It's the History Eraser button, you fool! Stimpy: So what'll happen? Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?
