what is the normal thickness of a marble saddle and can it be made thinner without it being a problem? also can a saddle be cut from man made stone and still have the strength of a marble saddle

Hi Sglam,

I'm not sure if I understand your question. I typically call a 'saddle' a cut that wraps around a door jamb, kinda looks like the top of an 'H".

Maybe your speaking of a 'threshold' or 'transition' piece of marble that joins a marble floor to another floor surface?

In either case the thickness shouldn't be a factor unless it's thinner than 3/8", if it's set in thinset mortar.

If I'm way off the mark, we need more information. :)

hope this helps,

A marble saddle is the same thing as the threshold piece you are describing.

Ahh, then I was thinking 'saddle cut' (which I try to avoid) :)

thanks for the clarification on the name Kurt.

Gives 'saddle sore' a whole new meaning, dunnit? :D

Dammit! It's called a "plinth" I tell you! :bang:

Shaughnn, you can drink a few plinths when you finish installing the saddle. :D
