Can stone slabs have sharp edges? Can stone slabs have sharp edges?
Stone slabs, when they are cut from a quarry, often are cut with naturally sharp edges. But edges that are sharp, are the first to be chipped and broken. The same is true with stone slabs used for countertops, walkways, and picnic tables.
Creating Stone Slab Edges
Countertops of stone, especially those with cutouts for the kitchen sink, are typically rounded, to prevent chipping, and to give the countertop a finished appearance. For a rounded edge on a stone slab, you can order it cut with rounded edges, or you can use a router with special attachments that will cut, bevel, smooth and even polish your stone slab edge.
