Travertine tables: manufacturing and assembly

Many of you ask how are the tables are made from a block of travertine. Some of the steps required to transform stone into tables of unique designs.

The first step is to remove the block from the quarry which is then transported to the sawmill to be cut into slices of varying thickness according to the needs of the project. These slices are obtained by setting the block on a frame made ​​of steel abrasive blades that use the stone cooled by jets of abundant water throughout the block sawing process.

The slices are then cut at a predetermined size, then worked and drawn thinly. It follows a series of polishing steps in the "polishing" during which they will successively applying abrasive grain adapted to the desired finish. A portable polisher will polish it with water.

Phase pore filler marble (travertine) is usually between the diamond dust finish and the last polishing step. The plates are then assembled together, much like a carpenter with his boards. It is then ready to be applied with a highly resistant adhesive for sealed marble and in some cases connected to a solid steel structure.

At the hands of masons carefully selected sliced wafers are harmoniously placed piece by piece to great such a masterpiece which can be admired and transformed into your surroundings.
