Steps to Drill the Culture Marble

Updated:2013-02-27 11:25:11
Since cultured marble owns a beautiful substance and is a great addition to a kitchen or bathroom, or for other creative countertop uses you may have, the following steps about how to drill culture marble will be helpful for you!

Step 1: Apply Duct Tape
Roughly determine where you want to drill your hole. Take a piece of duct tape and place it over this area. You will be drilling through this tape.

Step 2: Measure
Measure exactly where you want to drill the hole using a tape measure, and mark it with your marker onto the duct tape.

Step 3: Drill Hole
Securely place the bit or saw in your drill and prepare to drill. It is now a good time to use safety glasses, as bits of material may become airborne as you drill. At a 90 degree angle, apply light pressure and begin to drill into the cultured marble through the duct tape at the center of your mark. Cultured marble is easy to drill through, and you can use a standard drill bit instead of an expensive one. The key is that the drill bit should remain cool during the drilling process.

Step 4: Reducing Heat Buildup while Drilling
For the most efficient drilling, you need to keep the drill bit cool. To reduce heat buildup you can to use a lubricant. Another way to reduce it, and to also reduce the friction between the drill bit and the material, is with a spray bottle filled with water. Simply spray water on both the drill bit and the cultured marble occasionally while working. When you're finished drilling you can use a rag or cloth to wipe up any water, lubricant or debris. Carefully remove the duct tape.
