I need help with what tools to use to cut a space for a undermount sink into a marble counter top.

Cut undemount sink into Marble counter top


Grinder with a dry cutting diamond blade (and a shop vac). Although if you've never done it before, I'd be VERY careful. One mistake and there goes the marble top

You will be angling this blade to make the corners, and leave cut marks. So you will need a honing (round grinding stone) also. And 4" diamond grinding disks to polish the edge.
