Thats often best done with diamond saw blades, running them wet to 
control the heating that if not controlled, will ablate the diamond 
until its too dull to cut.

A wet tile saw, would be a decent start. And a thumbler for finish 
polish.

Don't knock that, creativity, if not used, tends to go away. Even at my 
age I still have an occasional flash of an idea. My problem is in 
getting it committed to code, or at least a paper outline, before the 
candle flames meet in the middle. When that happens, its both 
frustrating, and time for what passes for a beer around my place. 
Because I'm also a DM-II, that reduces to miller 64. Select 55 has been 
thru the horse 2 or 3 more times, and comes in alu cans in these here 
parts. That takes it off the table as I haven't willingly drunk from an 
alu can in 40 years. The connection between the alu can and the 
alzheimers epidemic is way too strong for me.
