Trimming/sanding cultured marble - bathroom vanity top


This is really a beltsander/cultured marble question.

I need to take an eighth of an inch off of each end (left and right sides) of a cultured-marble bathroom vanity top. I don't feel confident in using a saw and was curious whether a belt-sander would be sufficient to take that much off each end?

I've seen a thread or two in this regard but really wanted to know how much material the belt-sander could remove; with some will-power and elbow grease, of course.

Thanks in advance.

If this is one of those marble dust units, you should be able to remove it easily with a belt sander. Dust protection is a must.

Easily do-able. I assume this vanity top is to fit into a cubby hole?

Don't plan on being able to refinish the sanded edges, that ain't gonna happen, the edges will have to be hidden.

Thanks everyone. Very encouraging news. And yes, its a marblux top, comprised of marble dust and polyestor and the like. And yes, its going into a cubby, flush to three walls. So the sanded edges will be hidden. Thanks again.
