How to cut a radius in 3/4 inch slate ?

I have an old pool table slate.

We broke a round glass table top so I thought I would replace it with the slate.

So...I have a Stihl concrete saw but that will not cut a radius....

Any thoughts ??

You'd be the first if it did. Seriously 3/4 inch would be cake with a 4" diamond blade on grinder.

You should be able to cut an outside radius with a handheld concrete saw. Easier to do if you are using a 12" blade. Make your pencil mark and then cut an initial cut around the whole thing. Then go back and cut the rest of the way through slowly.

4" angle grinder and a diamond wheel, easiest way to do it, you'll find it will come in handy on jobs too for any little pieces.
