Cutting Cultured Marble‏

Question: I want to add a piece of cultured marble to the front of my bathtub. The piece I have available is too large for the spot. What is the best way to cut cultured marble?

Answer: I recommend that you use a masonry saw blade mounted on a circular saw. I prefer to use a diamond tipped masonry saw blade, but an abrasive masonry blade will also work.

Cultured marble, when cut, produces a lot of dust and fine particles. It is important that you wear goggles and a face mask. The use of a wet blade and a spray bottle of water will help to keep the dust down.

Cut the cultured marble with the back side facing up, this will protect the gel coat from beint scratched.

Note: The new exposed edges will be raw material and will not have the protection of the gel coat.
