Hi, I'm getting ready to install granite tile countertop in my bathroom. I've already done my kitchen which turned out incredible. My question is is that the sink and cooktop in the kitchen were rectangle so the cutting was easy. However, the sink I was going to use in the bathroom is oval. Therefore, I'm thinking I'm going to need to cut the granite tiles to form the oval as well.

SO...If I do have to cut the oval in the granite tiles, a regular wet saw won't work cause it only cuts straight lines. I was kinda thinking of getting a carbide bit for my rotozip and trying that. They are rated for marble which is softer than granite. Any other ideas???

As far as the hole for the sink, I don't think that I can get the sink to fit in a square/rectangle cause the template for the sink is oval.

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Mat

so what did you end up using for cutting the granite? For straight and curved cuts?
