Do you know what your local stone yards policy is about remnants left over from your countertops? At my local stone yard, you purchase the entire slab and any remnants have to be claimed by you within 30 days or the remnant reverts back into the stone yard's stock. Since our clients have already paid for the slab we try to use the extra stone. In a current project we are making an outside dining table and two tables for the foyer with remnants. So check on your stone yard's policy to get your money's worth.
