Need help cutting cobblestones


Hello, I have 1 ton of 4x4x4" cobblestones and 2 tons of 4x4x8" cobblestones and I want to build a semicircular patio area with a 2.5' circular hole in the middle for a fire pit. My problem is that I don't know how to cut or break the cobblestones to fill in odd spaces. Is there a blade i can buy for my circular saw or do I just need to repeatedly score with a chisel? Thanks!

You need a wet cutting brick saw available at a rental store.

And even with that, you may be in for a suprise if these are real, native stone. If they are hard, I'd try scoring with a saw & chiselling.

You can get a quick cut saw from the rental store a 12'' saw would be great rent the diamond blade and you should have no probleams

water attachement works for the saw but does it ever make a huge mess
