Countertop Screwup + soapstone question
So I have a large kitchen remodel and I was at the stage of getting the counters in. Soapstone on the perimeter with a large quartzite island top. I received a message today that they made and error while cutting the soapstone and half my slab is now unusable. They do not have any more from my lot (I have had my slab reserved for 1 1/2 years). They have one that is close to matching and when oiled I shouldn't be able to tell. However I am not planning to oil it all the time - see picture. The other option is to select from a different lot, but they only have small slabs (so more seams) and the color is lighter with beige veins (not what I want). I have come to the conclusion they will have to install my island and the perimeter will be plywood until they get in some soapstone I like (I may have plywood for quite some time). I guess I should get my money back for the perimeter counter (I've already paid in full).
For the soapstone people out there - I have a 2" bumpout at my cooktop and they said the smallest corner radius possible is 1.8". I want something more square. They said they could do that, but it would have to be cut by hand and it would not look perfectly straight and the stone would feel wavy. Anyone have experience with this?
