Yellow River Granite Makes Gorgeous Countertops
We had the joy last week of installing this Yellow River granite for a remodel of a lovely home in Dripping Springs, TX.
One 96″ long piece went on a custom-made master bathroom cabinet with two undermount sinks.
Another piece went on a set of custom laundry cabinets. You can see from the photo that the laundry room counter goes all the way in to the window ledge area. It also covers the pony wall on the left, and a wee piece tucks around the wall on the right. We call those little bits “dog ears” but I have no idea why.
Templating for Yellow River Granite
We made custom templates for these counters, to make sure the new counters would fit just right. The homeowner came by the shop and we put the templates up on the slab so she could see where the prettiest parts of the slab would be.
She wanted to preserve the bluest spots for where she would see it the most often, so we marked the slabs for where they should be cut.
If you pick a stone as pretty as Yellow River, you might want to see how your counters will lay out, too.
