Here’s an overview of each DVD in the set:
Volume 1: Profiling & Polishing
You’ll learn how to fabricate a piece of stone. The term “fabricate” means to work with, cut and add detail. This DVD demonstrates making contoured edges on stone and what tools you need for the work. Then next topic covered is stone polishing. It’s demonstrated in great detail, so you’ll soon know how to get a “factory” high-gloss gleam on your granite or marble. Finally, using re-rod to strengthen stone slabs while moving or installation is fully explained.
Volume 2: Undermount Sink
One of the toughest aspects of the job is made easy with clear, easy-to-follow instructions. The DVD shows you how to fabricate the stone to accommodate an oval undermount sink or a rectangular sink with rounded corners. Specific covered include:
- Fabricating the sink hole
- Drilling the spigot hole
- Mounting the sink and adding support
- Mounting the countertop to cabinets
- Installing the backsplash
The final touch is a description of polishing and sealing the stone to keep it beautiful and stain-free.
Volume 3: Glues & Sealers
The third DVD in the set starts with instruction on making straight cuts on stone slabs using a circular saw. From there, you’ll learn:
- How to laminate edges of the slab
- How to glue seams like a pro
