Wondering if this is a job too far or will just take too long to cut to be worth bothering.

Been offered a slab of granite 2m long under 1m wide 20mm thick

It will fit in the car, with bodies to help lift probably 70-80kg

I can use it in a utility/garage as a worktop but it is too long and wide(need around 600mm) for the space so needs cutting down, the cut edges will be against walls so do not have to 100% I could run a row of tiles to hide.

I think I have the diamond discs for my angle grinder or will need to buy one.

previous plan was cheap worktop as they come in the right size to just fit.
