Have you ever seen a chiseled edge on granite? Do you like it? I like it for a rustic, Non-Traditional look.

    OK I was nice enough to reply with my opinion on the chisled look and I reeived a reply of had I seen the chisled look before. No only in pictures, but I'm a Nana with 9 grandkids and lots of traffic, and it would be hard to keep it clean.

    Very cool, looks a little dangerous though, at least for clumsy people like me. :)

    Nice idea for small spaces.

    I like it and also think it will hide the inevitable chips that you get on the edges of granite over time.
  • I think it could work as long as there weren't any sharp edges!

    I would hate to accidentally rub up against that in my house

    I agree. That would not be too comfortable. But the look would be great in a log home!
  • Lee Anne, nice picture! It looks geat with the shaker cabinets.

    Did a cabin a few years ago, and that kind of rustic look would have been very good there. The only problem I have with it cosmetically if it DOES fit (and it would only go in certain places) ... is that it doesn't fit well with the highly polished
  • It takes a skilled fabricator to do it right and the end result looks better on certain types of stone. I would recommend asking for a sample of the chiseled edge on the particular stone you would like to use.
  • Now that is awesome!!! Very natural, not sharp. You are amazing, I have never seen this done before!!! Kudos!!!

    Now THAT'S exactly what I had in mind when I posted my opinion sometime back...

    Taking my cap off for a few moments as a gesture of sweetly savoring this effect you've produced...

  • Thank you for the compliments! We just finished the project so I intend on putting up a few more pictures in the next couple of days. If you have any upcoming projects I would be happy to assist you!

    Atlanta ganite custom: Now that's more like it. Still not really something I'd go with for an 'all the time' kitchen, but what fun for a vacation home! Well done work!
  • I couldn't agree more Cheryl.
