    My wife picked up the larger size at Fantes this past June. She prefers it over the marble when working on bread doughs. BoardSmith studied it in-depth a couple weeks ago -- give him a call and see if he can do something for you.

    As far as marble slabs go, that 18x24 size is probably the smallest you should think about going. But if it will not stay out on the counter all of the time it will be a PITA to lug/ stash if you get it thick enough (1-1/2 inches?). Not inexpensive by any means, but a one-time purchase that will be a nice thing to have for many years. Call around to some counter/ tile installers -- you can probably get a piece from them for less then a fabricator will sell it for.

    I pmed you but didn't see she already tried the counter top place. Look at chef rubber I use them a lot but no clue on marble honestly try another counter top place no way a remnant should be that much. Thicker is definitely better for keeping cold and any of the solid surfaces work with marble being the coldest. I use soapstone at home and have no problems with it. Where are you located I might be able to get you a piece but shipping might be crazy and difficult. Also I have a friend that found a cheap table at goodwill with a granite top and he uses that its worked well for years. As a pastry we are used to using tools for everything else such as drywall taping knives for chocolate work, and so on.

    If there is a Habitat for Humanity "Restore" in the area they are often a great place for things like this, or any building recycle place.

    Yep, especially if you are near north Georgia.
