DIY Stone Ring for Sauna Stove

Created a stone ring to separate the Sauna stove from the wood.

Cutting soapstone with saw
It all started with a slab of leftover soapstone. that i cut in half to get enough material to work with.
I may have ended up using a large angle grinder with a diamond blade when i entered some non soapstone material that did not want to be cut with wooden tools
