    I got some that when I am done cutting, all the sides that show are already polished up and don't need any routing. Lucked out there. i understand that part is a quite a task in it's self. I will be looking into that before I start my kitchen. LOL

    Granite can be really expensive so I'm not sure it would be a good idea to try this alone and end up wasting money. My husband likes to do most of the repairs and stuff around the house, but I wouldn't want him to try this and have us end up paying more money to get it fixed. I would much rather the professionals come in and do install the granite to ensure it's done right.
