For those of you with marble...

Yesterday our fabricator came to do a template (not for marble). He told me he has had marble in his bathroom for about eight years and it is beautiful. He deals with etching by refinishing the stone every two to three years (he sands/buffs it down and then polishes it again).

He did say he didn't think it was a very practical solution unless you are a fabricator. So there you go. You just need to marry a fabricator.

Hmmm..... I tend to disagree heartily with "he didn't think it was a very practical solution unless you are a fabricator".

Most of the countertops in my home are either marble or soapstone (guest bath is the only granite in the house), I would assume if he doesn't recommend marble he would surely 'dis' soapstone.

Bummer for the folks who ask his opinion on alternative surfaces.

RE: For those of you with marble...

The pros on the bathroom forum explain how to hone marble, but they do say its harder to really polish well again.

It sounds like something I'd still try though on a piece of marble.
