Add A Unique Edge To Your Countertops…

I recently posted, It’s All In The Details, which featured an Imperial Danby Honed marble vanity that we we recently fabricated and installed with a unique edge. This particular job also included a number of other tops with the same edge double laminated large ogee over full bullnose edge detail, so in this post, I wanted to take a look at  another vanity from a different bathroom.
