Maybe a stupid question on coping

#1
Hi everyone,

We have been looking at pavers and finally settled on one. We want a uniform look so we wanted the coping to be an exact match to the paver stones. The problem is that the stone that we would use for coping is not really made as pool coping but rather as a piece that would sit on top of a wall, and the issue is that the edges are somewhat sharp. Does anyone know if it is possible to somehow smooth the edge slightly, maybe by sanding it down or something else.

We used Lueters Limestone. We had a choice of bull nose (rounded) or rough cut. Both are just different finishing methods so I would say if the installers are from a rock supplier, they could easily do it

You can grind or form a soft edge on pavers with an Angle grinder and diamond wheel. Its dusty/ dirty and you need to wear a mask.

There are also pavers made just for pool coping.
