Get Natural Soapstone Countertops at a Fraction of the Cost with Our DIY Kit
Unlike granite, soapstone is soft enough that it doesn’t require special tools for fabrication. All you need is a circular saw, a jigsaw, a drill/driver, a grinder, and a sander, making your kitchen soapstone countertop an inexpensive DIY project.
How To Save
Soapstone is a soft stone that can be cut and shaped without any special stone working tools. Did you know that more than half the cost of natural stone counters comes from labor? With soapstone you can eliminate that expense and have natural stone countertops for a fraction of the cost!

DIY Soapstone Countertop Options
For the most savings you would do everything yourself. Simply order pre-cut slabs you need for your project. We stock pre-cut DIY slabs in 30″ widths by 6′ and 7′ and (all sizes may not be available at all times).
The most time consuming part of the fabrication is cutting the slabs to size. For your convenience we offer cut-to-size services at the cost of $14.00 per square foot (prices may vary per location, does not include cost of material). When you soapstone arrives you will need to do the edge treatments, cut outs and installation. This option is good for those who need to use larger/heavier non DIY slabs , and need to get the larger slabs to a more manageable size.
Cut-to-Size and Finished Edge
Another time saver option, we’ll deliver the slabs to you cut to size and with a finished edge of your choice.
This option is ideal those who choose not to do any fabrication and just want to install the countertops. Once we obtain accurate measurements and/or templates we will fabricate your countertops to your specification. When your countertops arrive all you have to do is the installation.
DIY Soapstone Countertop Support
Help is always available, to answer technical questions, before, during and after the DIY project. We have our own branches in three different US time zones that ensure,no matter where you are calling from during business hours, we are open!
