How to Make Stone Cuts with a Power Saw Look Natural
Mark discussed various techniques for cutting and knocking down edges of stones. The hand tools he used were a variety of chisels that can be found at some home centers and most masonry supply stores.

The replacement faucet was a Kleo Spot Resist Stainless One-Handle High Arc Pulldown Kitchen Faucet [], which is manufactured by Moen [] and found at most home centers.

The other tools and materials Richard used to replace the kitchen sink and faucet, including the wrenches and plumber’s putty, can be found at home centers.

To add trim to the toe kick underneath the kitchen cabinets, Tom used 1×4” PVC trim boards [], which are manufactured by AZEK Building Products []. To secure the miters together, Tom also used a PVC glue that is manufactured by AZEK [].
