How Thin Stone Slabs Are Made:

You can fabricate Thin Stone with typical shop tooling and stoneworking techniques. Use your usual tools for cutting, grinding, polishing and finishing. Match the blade to the material and cut at a slightly slower traverse speed than you would for a 2 cm stone.

A few key notes:

  • No special tools are required for working with 1cm slabs.
  • You’ll get more precise cuts with the same blade when cutting Thin Stone.
  • You’ll want to use plenty of water to cool the blade and prevent any chipping.
  • It will take less time to complete the job and cause less wear on the tools themselves as it preserves blade life significantly over 2 and 3 cm stone.
