Levi, very nice,:tup1: , i think your being too hard on yourself.

Excellent as usual Levi,

Start chanting the mantra I learned a long time ago - " I don't make them, I just install them"

Levi's not being too hard on himself, he's still waiting for the trance to wear off from the tile patterns. Nice work

Yeah Paul the one I said over and over again on this one (only to my helper of course) was "I'm a tile setter not a ______ magician"

Levi it looks sweet. Slate is bad always just like Quartzite.

Looks good man, sometimes you gotta lay wider joints I like to keep everything tight.

Dunno how many times I have used that line. :shades:

I agree you did a great job, I happen to like slate. Not for a shower but I really like the slate on the floor. The slate in the shower and on the tub, well if that is what they picked out then I can see why they're happy. Sometimes we question ourselves while on a job.....but believe me when your gone for the day the customer is usually looking at it. Granted some people don't pay much attention till it's done and some aren't even there yet if it is new construction.

I think you did a great job on the installation:tup1:

Steve another fine install:tup2:

Nice job Steve! :tup1:

Nice job Steve and Levi.

Levi -if the client wanted a perfect smooth seamless surface they would have put some ugly slabs of corion up. Or some very modern rectified porcelain. (I like this just different look)

They instead chose slate a natural stone that typically comes in varying thicknesses, so they valued 'character' over 'perfection'
You obviously made it as perfect as the specified material allowed.

Levi, I think you did a damn good job on that slate.
The OCD meeting for tile setters should meet every Thurs on the JB forum - we all got it!

Steve - Mighty fine work my friend.

the slate could have turned out like this :eek:
a salon I did a few years ago - I didn't set it just did the refinish on it - lots o toe stubbers there
