I'm installing a dry-laid patio covered with 24" square, 1.5" thick, geo-cut thermal bluestone slabs. These are the cuts I will need to make:
- 22 slabs will need a straight cut across the entire 24" length
- 4 slabs will need a straight cut at a 45 degree angle to the square face (a few inches in length)
- 1 piece will need an inside corner cut (remove a small rectangle from one corner)
The slabs will be placed with minimal joints so straight cuts are important. The cut edge won't be visible so surface polish is not important.
It's a fairly large project (430 SF patio) so I'm open to purchasing or renting equipment if that speeds up the job or gives better results. I own a small angle grinder (4-1/2" blade, 8.5A motor) and a circular saw (7-1/4" blade, 15A non-worm drive motor) and a few basic stone-shaping hand tools.
Have any advice on making these cuts? I'm particularly unsure how to approach an inside corner cut.
