    Hi guys,

    I have just been given 4 small marble slabs, they are 600mm – 23″ . 5 / 8″   x  300mm – 11″ . 3/4 …..First thought was some small tables, but they are narrow, and I’m wondering if the would be easily  knocked over with such a small footprint. Not keen on having to splay the legs. I forgot to say they are 22mm – 7/8″ thick

    Cheers

    Hi Ken,

    A lot depends on their final height versus proportion and overall weight of the top assembly, but designs to consider could include something along the lines of a plinth based occasional side table. 😉

    Hey Ken,
    I would put two into one table top side by side. It would be nearly square. You could use them like tiles and set them in a frame with grout between them. This would also provide strength and support for the marble.

    Just an idea.

     

    Keep well.

    If pairing the slabs up for a single table top I’d consider adding them as inserts bedded on a 1/2″ thick ply base plate within a rebated top frame.  Adding a dividing strip will make the resulting joint between the tiles appear deliberate while concealing minor chips and edge flaws in the stone.  You could opt for a contrasting grout, but I think I’d consider charcoal or black grout for this colour tile.

    Potential coffee table material perhaps? 🙂
