Has anyone built with Con-tent Living and had a 40mm aris bench top (essastone) instead of their standard 20mm. Or a mitred edge?
I'd prefer a 40mm or even 60mm mitred edge but they are saying they only do aris edge. Seems they "make their own kitchens" so now i'm assuming their limited in what they can do. I guess having a 40mm aris edge gets pricey as its effectively two 20mm slabs stuck together and you get the potential visible line running horizontally through the exposed edging where the two slabs join.
Anyone got any feedback? How difficult is it t do a mitred edge on a 20mm slab?

40mm edge is slightly more exp than 20mm, because of labour and time involved to do that. MAterial wise, depends on how wide the bench top is, but most of the case, it doesnt require you buy another slab to do 40mm edge bench top
From what you described, we call laminated edge , which means 2 of 20mm stone sandwiched to achived 40mm finished edge. But it is only the edging, it does not make your whole bench top 40mm thick, as we require substrates (18mm -20mm) to pack up the stone top.
There is another method of doing 40mm edge which is mitred, which is 2 of 20mm stone piece cut into 45 degree angle and stick them together to achieve 40mm edge. Doing 40mm edge this way, you will not see the horizontal line along 40mm edging
When we polished sharp corner of edge, that how we achieve aris, but can do a round one which called pencil round.
Mitred edge is very popular nowadays in this industry, so I dont think it is difficult at all.
