    Does anyone know a good source for alabaster? I need a couple of pieces approximately 2.5" x 3.5" x 0.25". Also what is the best way to cut it?

    Thanks,
    Tom

    The source I have in my files is: Colorado Albaster, Colorado Alabaster Supply. I have always used a tile saw with a diamond blade. Harbor Freight, or Home Depot has the saws and blades.

    When we cleared my Uncle's house the local auction room would not even take his alabaster topped tables and said to dump them.

    Based on that I would look at charity furniture shops.
