Livewire: Thank you and that was basically my question. I was wondering though if I could find someone with the special saw and have them slice it for us. I mean, SOMEONE is slicing granite veneer out of fieldstone, right? I guess I was hoping the right forum could tell me who the someone is to look for and ask. One local stone place already said no...
