  • Uncut Granite Slabs?

    Does anybody know where they can be purchased within a reasonable drive from Indy?

      How thick? You might call the "Stone Center" on 65th street. I have seen some 1.5" - 2" thick at Home Depot at times.

        2" would probably be a bit excessive. I'm wanting to cut my own kitchen countertops. The best I've found so far is 1 1/4" thick quartz for $16 a square foot. I'm pretty happy with that if I can't find granite, but I'd prefer granite. I'll give the Stone Center a call.

          Is someone going to put this on YouTube?

            Whoops, meant to say countertops. I'm buying unfinished cabinets.

            I'm doing an entire home remodel. Video may or may not become available, probably depending on the amount of blood lost.

              and i assume you know the weight per square foot of granite?? and how to fabricate it without ruining the entire slab? you da man if you can pull it off..... kudos for effort anyway.

                The granite is expensive - cutting it is cheap. I bought a piece from a boneyard and they had a huge water cutter that went through it like butter. Can't remember the name off hand, but it was a mile or so West of Shadeland in the 30's block. HUGE boneyard selection. This place did all the work for Lucas Oil Stadium. If not them, there are no fewer than five places on Shadeland in that area.

                  I have piles of scrap available that I can practice cutting. I've read quite a bit and have several weeks still before I do anything. I will make a plywood template and make sure it's perfect before touching the rock with a blade.

                  I'm pretty confident, but the bottom line is I plan on doing many kitchens after this one, so one way or the other it's something I need to learn.

                    Was it this place?

                    I was in there this afternoon. He seemed to think it would be about $2500 to purchase and cut the amount that I need. I didn't get the impression that he would see me a sheet uncut. I didn't see any other places in the area listed in on yp.com, so I didn't look anywhere else.

                      You gotta admit, though-granite cabinets would be DAMN cool.

                            Digging through some old stuff, I found the place in Indy I used for our bathroom. Huge boneyard and decent prices.
