Here at Soapstone Werks we not only do soapstone counter tops but wood ones as well. Wood and soapstone counter tops look great paired together in a kitchen. We strive to give our customers a kitchen that is not only usable but beautiful.
The wood island shown measures 108×54 inches. It is a beautiful compliment to the Black Duro Soapstone. The peninsula where the sink is, measures 99×63 inches. The pennisula’s overhang needed steel support every 18 inches. Soapstone weighs 22 pounds per square feet which is much heavier than granite. Granite weighs 13-14 pounds per square feet. The drain board was carved here at our shop. They used this same soapstone for their outside barbecue as well.
