This is a simple question really but lets get into it a bit more happy

Pallets are probably the most common finger boarding obstacle out there. Most people have one or two lying around. By themselves they are great to do tricks over, and they help raise rails, benches, etc. to spice up your tricks and combos. I've also seen a lot of people have either granite or marble slabs that they use as manny pads or impromptu ledges ontop of pallets and such.

If, by some freak coincidence, there happened to be a stock of marble slabs, cut to the size of two pallets laid end to end, would you buy one?

I personally would just make it myself. If I were you I'd try making them more unique. Not something just anyone could do. The concept is cool and I think you're going in the right direction man happy

Thanks man happy Marble can be quite expensive anyway, so I'm not sure these are something just anyone can make, but I get your point. I have some ideas to make them more unique but don't really want to publish them here (trade secrets and all). At the moment, cost is another factor. I have a price in mind that I think people would be willing to pay but the manufacture costs could possibly be too high; I'm waiting to here back from my stone mason.

I'm really just trying to gauge interest to see if it is worth investing in.

Haha, you haven't burst the bubble dude happy. I counter your point with the fact that shipping on a Flatface manny pad to the UK would be extortionate because of the weight; it more than doubles the price if you choose international shipping. So there is a gap in the UK/European market. Also theirs is granite, mine would be marble, slightly thinner and possibly have features, depending on the manufacture costs.

A finished product would really help. Also maybe engrave the marble to make it more unique?

Unless you are Bono, i'm not gonna pay you to engrave your name into a marble tile.
