I believe in recycling when you can. Collected marble scraps for about a year, saved from a landfill, one inch thick asst sizes, I needed a kitchen floor and figured had enough scraps, a huge pile to make it. Floor is 18 feet x 24 feet Just started with the face and the rest followed and it worked ! Didn’t cut anything used all “as is” no alterations. Couldn’t believe how much grout it consumed please see next grouting photo.
