Any issues or tips for cutting out the opening in the granite for the sink?
For the sink, my first recommendation is to get a square one. Makes the cuts very simple. Second, take a look at this picture.
I placed the granite so the left side ended at the sink, so the only cuts I had to make were on the right side of the sink. It was 2 simple "L" pieces I had to make. No problem at all.
Now, my neighbor just finished a similar project and he had a round copper sink and he a miserable time cutting it. Hard to explain, but he marked the tile and then using his wet saw he just cut a bunch of strips into the granite up to he line. You could say he cut perpendicular to the circle he traced on the tile. Then, he just snapped the thin pieces off. It worked, it just took him a while to do it.
