Cultured Marble - How To Cut and Shape

Cutting cultured marble requires a certain amount of care and skill because while the material itself is extremely hard, it is easily damaged because it can splinter and chip. When cutting and shaping cultured marble take your time and follow these tips.

Make Sure Measurements Are Accurate

Write down your measurements on paper and keep it as you make your cuts. You don't want to be off because you couldn't remember whether it was a  1/2-inch cut rather than a 3/4-inch cut. Double check your measurements and always mark in pencil on the surface before you cut.

Keep Cultured Marble Firmly Secured

When cutting any surface is it important that it is sitting on a stable workspace. Cultured marble, due to its hardness, can shift easily when pressure is applied. Clamp the cultured marble piece down securely before you make any cuts.

Use Sharp Blades

Using a dull blade on cultured marble can lead to chipping and splintering as you move the blade through the material. With cultured marble, it is important to have a fresh blade on hand when you need it.


Working with cultured marble is difficult, but it doesn't have to be impossible. Follow these easy steps for pain free cutting and shaping.
