I thought everything looked good.

Seriously ? So if I post something that looks like caca no one can suggest a better way. I'd rather have the suggestions so that so next time I have a better looking shower. I'm pretty sure that everything said was just constructive criticism and I doubt the Cain cried himself to sleep last night. :D

Here in the Pro's Hangout we don't pull punches. It's presumed that we're all professionals who want to improve the services being offered to our clients, and peer criticism is the surest method of breaking bad habits. I don't think that anyone was being cruel or malicious in their criticisms. But when faced with something out-of-step, it's usually appreciated and respected to be offered a few tips. None of us here are infallible. If we were, we'd be traveling the land in an RV and living the semi-retarred life. :D

I agree whole heartedly Shaugn. If I posted work, and some of the pro's on here wanted to tell me what they think I could have done better I want to hear that.

As the guy in the corner trying to watch and learn, the pointing out and clarification of the subtle details is very helpful...........

Thanks Rick,
Yes I did.
I hit it with a cup grinder first, to give it a bit more bite.

I had to rip one out the next day, that I wasn't happy with. And it was a PITA. So no worries about the bond.

Thanks Kevin, It's surprising that people don't use the spell checker more often.

not in progress.......3 months ago.

Nice Kevin :tup2:

Did you have to cut the tiles to fit above the door opening? width wise obviously. Can't see how the inside wall of the shower matches the outside wall, but I prolly woulda centered the outside wall if it doesn't flow perfectly with the inside wall. Looks good though, I sure love quarter round. IMHO it looks so much better than bn

tuckertile 05-06-2011 03:10 PM

i didnt want 2 cuts going down right side of opening:eek: and bottom deco does not carry into shower... layout nightmare! homeowners wanted to use up glass! yea im a Q.R guy..
