Get Natural Soapstone Countertops at a Fraction of the Cost with Our DIY Kit

Our Kitchen-to-Go Kit is ideal for the handy homeowner who would like a beautiful soapstone kitchen countertop at a considerable saving.

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!

Are you interested in a custom DIY soapstone project? Looking to build the perfect soapstone kitchen countertop or soapstone bathroom sink? We will even give you a “practice piece” for you to test before you commit to doing it.

Complete DIY

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′  long and  full size slabs up to 10′ in lenght (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.

Full Pre-Fabricated

This option is ideal for 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.

We also stock pre cut slabs in 72”x30” x 1 ¼” and 84” x 30”x 1 ¼” sizes . Full slab sizes also available, and are typically 120” x 75”, these can be cut to size, edged and shaped on request. Please call us toll free to order – 1-877-478-8170 or email us.
