Below are a few ideas to help with your stone budget.
Deep cut moldings and moldings that are undercut take longer to produce and increase the time and cost of production.
Molded pieces should be no less than 1-1/2″ thick at the thinnest point.
Steps should be no less than ¼” to assure a sharp edge.
This design can break. If not in production, in handling.
Potential stone savings.
