Bespoke stonework? Ogee edge? Our decoration skills last far longer than Christmas, and we are really proud of what our stonemasons can do. In particular, in Ben and Antonio we have two of the best in terms of bespoke stonework. Both have been involved in projects far more complicated than kitchen worktops, and love to bring their skills into play on our demanding jobs!

An ogee edge is a classic in our industry. We do not have the tooling on our CNCs to do it automaticaly – but that does not make it (or Cove Dupont, and a few others) impossible for our staff. Here are a few images and a video of Ben creating an Ogee edge profile on Caesarstone Turbine Grey. The section being worked includes a breakfront.

Antonio and Rodrigo are a Portuguese father and son who have become vital parts of our Affordable Granite team. Antonio is one of our most versatile members of staff, with excellent work done in the workshop, as a templater and as part of a fitting crew. We love his pride in his work – he is a man who gets immense satisfaction from creating something beautiful.

We recently fabricated a set of kitchen worktops in Cambria Skye. This lovely blue stone is as eye-catching and out of the ordinary as you can get – though I guess it is a bit Marmite-Factor! Antonio got hold of one of the offcuts and created this table centre-piece / cheese board with it. The sculpted edge and handle at each end make it attractive and practical.


Antonio could create a similar centre-piece for you out of offcuts to match your kitchen. Cost £150 inc VAT – you can have the material for free, provided there is enough left from your slabs!
