Question

I have a marble countertop for a small vanity that I plan to intsall. The sink hole is cut, the edges are finished and the back splash is made.

Is there any reason why I should not try this? And does anyone have any suggestions regarding adhesives or drill bits? (I need to drill 3 holes for fixtures).

For adhesive you can use either epoxy mortar or flexible thin set (marble specific). Choose based on the flatness of the surfaces and on potential movement. Epoxy is rigid and perminate. Normally diamond drills are used to bore holes. It might be best to mark the hole centers and have them bored (less risk that way). But, (with extreme caution), carbide hole saws will eventually bore through the marble. The risks are burning the marble or cracking it from too much heat and taking chips out when setting the bit or going through the other side. (Bore from both sides, if you decide to try this, and know the risks).
