I have salvaged from a neighbor's apartment a beautiful green marble two-sink counterop 1.5" thick and 72" long. If I can cut it to 36" it will perfectly replace the aging laminate top I now have, which accommodates one sink.
What do I use to cut it? Tools I have at present are a 7.25" circular saw and a small Makita tile cutting saw.
What special blades do I need? Or other tools?
Do I try to cut in one pass or is it better to make several passes, increasing depth of cut each time?
Do I cut dry or wet?
If I succeed I will have a 36" top with a cut-out for a round sink. What to do if I prefer to install an oval sink?
