I have an old vanity top left over from my bathroom remodeling project. The
top has the sink built in and it is made of cultured marble. Can I cut out
the sink into a new oval shape and reuse it? I have a few non-carbide
router bits that I would be willing to use (sacrifice). But I was wondering
if anyone else has tried this.
Thanks for the help.
Forget the router. I have cut cultured marble with a sabre saw blade
that has carbide granules welded to the cutting edge. I am not sure if
they still make them. An abrasive blade in a skilsaw will make straight
One for the nail and two for the board.

work, but it would certainly make a dusty mess and possibly ruin your

probably cost less than you think.
You are just showing your ignorance. You are making speculation on
something you have no experience with. I have professionally installed
cultured on several occasions. A diamond cutting edge of any kind that
moves the speed of a router would plug up. I have yet to see a router
made to work with a water feed.
