As a woodworker I use templates at times for accuracy. With that same thought I'd be tempted to try using a guide under the stone. Could be a washer, or fender washer already cut out or you could cut a template to a specific size yourself using a hole saw. That would be the free form method of forming the outer edge. You could also develop a jig that holds your dop stick horizontally to your grinder and work it in a manner similar to a lathe.  Could be something as simple as a wood knee clamped to your bench with a hole in it for the dop stick.
