What to Do with Scrap Marble for Homeowners and Contractors

Many homeowners have marble installed within their homes, as it is so beautiful and a lot easier to maintain than wood or linoleum flooring. The most affordable marble to purchase for homeowners is white cerrara, but there are many varieties to suit ones esthetic needs with a good budget and fine eye. Having installed marble within many homes myself, I started to save all the scrap and accumulated quite a few different cuts from various stocks. Many contractors and homeowners discard their scrap marble, as it is a bit heavy and could create clutter. Well, if you ever have a marble installation, don't throw out the scraps. I have a solution to create some elegant decor for indoor and outdoor use. Many people love to shop at rummage and yard sales to find something they can use or show-off as household decor. I'm sure everyone has seen end tables that are worn and tattered at rummage sales, and just don't buy them because they are in bad shape. Well, If one ever runs into a matching set of end tables, you've hit the jackpot! One essential tool you will need is a ceramic or marble cutting wet-saw that can be rented affordably at any Home Depot store. The wet-saw is very safe to use as a tool, as the diamond blades rotation is designed so it cannot cut ones finger off, so don't worry. Preferably, rent a wet-saw that has a bevel tray for the tapering of edges. Keep in mind, you'll have to have a fair amount of scrap, and maybe a few square foot of whole pieces of marble. Building this refurbished table or tables is kind of like putting a puzzle together, only you get to design the puzzle with all your scrap marble.
