Ceaserstone (Quartz) Island Table

September 27, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I am in the process of remodeling my kitchen and am looking for suggestions or an expert who can help me troubleshoot the installation process. My installer is concerned that they will not be able to make 45" cuts into the quartz, to avoid seems where the top and sides butt up. I've seen pictures all of the place where this has been done. Can anyone help me out? I am in Northern California and would be interested in an installers advice on how to proceed or someone to contact. Thank you!

This is the look I'm trying to duplicate

What you want is called a waterfall. It is created by a 45* cut as you thought. If your current installer can not execute this, then you need to find one who can. Ask for a reference where they have done this.

Has your installer indicated *why* they have this concern?

Miter cuts are notoriously difficult in brittle materials like quartz. The sharp edge tends to chip. Quartz is composed of silica, so essentially a form of glass and chips very easily. That may be their concern, it's worth asking.
