Tell me why I had to be a powerslave.
I don't wanna die, I'm a god, why can't I live on?
When the Life Giver dies, all around is laid waste.
And in my last hour,
I'm a slave to the power of death.

Don't use real marble, it's way too hard to work. Get Corian, it's synthetic stone countertop. It can be worked with woodworking tools (bandsaw, sander). Try going to a kitchen place and seeing if they have any scraps. I have a friend who works in one and thats how I got mine.
I have some and have been lazy about finishing some grips. Maybe now I'll get some done to post up soon.

I think marble would be way too hard to work and unless you made them pretty thick would be very prone to cracking and breaking. You can get some man made products that look just like stone but are easier to work. Still very brittle stuff. One hard drop and it's done for. Corian is a reasonable option though.

I'd suggest looking into some of the alternative man made products out there and maybe some acrylics. Dymondwood / colorwood is pretty cool stuff too and not too expensive if you can find a supplier.

My brother has a marble table top that used to belong to my grand mother. It's about 3' x 5' and 1 inch thick, but even at that thickness the bottom edges are chipped in a few places just from lifting it in and out of it's table frame over the years. So unless your going to have the grips made 1/4" thick with completely square edges it would be a total disaster when they start to chip or break in half from a rough bump.
