Question arch cutting

I'm looking for suggestions to cut an arch in floor tile.
The tiles are 12x12's, the arch is slight, 36" long that goes about 2" deep in the middle.
Any thoughts??

Yeah a 4" diamond blade in a 4" right angle grinder will do it, then a belt sander with a silicon carbide belt to finish the edges.

Are your tules porcelain, hopefully?

The silicon carbide belts would be the major stumbling block but I can tell you where to find them if this idea is the way you choose to go.

There is one other thing you can do. You can cut the tiles down to a smaller size and in the shape of "arch stones". Does that make any sense? Arches are easy with smaller pieces to work with unless you were doing a twelve foot arch then your full 12" tiles would probably work fine, ah-h-h-h- but I digress.
