Question DetailsAsked on 8/11/2014

Anyone know of someone that can install and cut a sink hole in a soapstone counter? Any idea what this would cost?

I recently purchased a small soapstone kitchen counter (8.5 ft by 2 ft). I need someone to cut a sink cutout in the soapstone and put in an undermount sink. Anyone have any recommendations? Anyone have any idea on the cost?

Soapstone is soft - we have it also. So it may well be possible to do it on-site but there is risk in doing that and it will create a incredible mess throughout your kitchen.


The best thing is to let a soapstone fabricator come in, template EXACTLY what will be needed, take it with them, fabricate it at their shop and reinstall it. They will tell you if it is possible on-site but typically that is for small stuff like making a hole for a faucet, not an entire sink cutout.


I would only trust a soapstone fabricator with this, as they work constantly with that material. There are only so many in a given area and they specialize.


By the way, if you intend to enhance it with oil or wax, we find that walnut oil works the best for us - much better than mineral oil. The color lasts for a long time between treatments.


As to cost ... good question. I can't even guess it.


Good luck!
