Vermont Slate - Woodworking
Vermont Slate - Woodworking
Slate is not affected by either water or frost, so is superior to marble in outdoor use. It can be used for name and house number signs as well as commemorative plaques and memorial tablets. Slate is also often used in crafts. In recent years it has been used to make household items ranging from coasters to hors d'oeuvres platters.

The slate is sheared in 6" x 12" and 5-1/2" x 8" (standard shingle sizes), and 4" x 4". The larger sizes are completely smooth on one face only. The other face has chipping at the edges, creating a more rustic appearance.

The 4" x 4" slates have been wet-cut with a diamond saw, and have smooth edges. Though completely smooth on one face, they may have some chipping next to one edge or the other.

All slates are split by hand and are about 1/4" to 3/8" thick.

The 6" x 12" Gray or Sea Green Slates are available only at our retail stores.
