Fathers Day Fiasco

I purchased a fibrament stone for my husband as a Fathers Day gift.  I ordered a 20X20 to find out my oven is not deep enough....can this stone be cut? If yes, how?  Hope someone out there can help !!

I'm sure it can be cut.  It appears to be a high-tech cement-like substance.  I'd try a local concrete or tile company.  They'd likely have saws that can take the temperatures necessary to keep cutting a stone like Fibrament.

Good luck to you!

Heck, even a local hardware store with a wet saw might be able to do it (if they sell and cut tile they'll probably have the necessary equipment).

They cut tiles there, it used to be a buck a cut.

I bought 2 regular pizza stones (enough stone to cover the entire oven rack) and had one cut with a water saw at Home Depot in their ceramic tile dept.  As I recall, they charged U.S. fifty cents per cut.  Also, any ceramic tile company that installs ceramic tile should have a water saw.
