    A bit of a wierd one this

    I am looking for a 600x 1200mm 25 - 50mm thick piece of slate.


    It is to make a memorial stone for my daughter that passed away five years ago. I have never found a stone mason that can do what I am looking for.

    I have permission from my local council to do what I want. Building contorl have said they will check it for conformity. So legally every thing is in place.

    I did have a piece coming from a retired snooker table but the guy destroyed it trying to get it out himself and it's now too short for requirement.

    If any one knows where I might find a piece can you let me know?

    Thanks Guys.

    Regularly used in the trade in making fireplaces - hearths and surrounds. Try your local suppliers for contacts. Good luck.

    I tried a local guy on a enterprise estate that I want to take a unit in. Got a bit of a blank look when I gave him the dimentions. The local water jet cutters that I am going to use also has drawn a blank currently. I really thought I was on a winner when the table came up. Thems the breaks I guess.
