I approached it with a fresh attitude this morning. Did a bunch of cuts on the scrap I made last night. Thought I was doing better with being more meticulous with the breaker 10mm from the edge, as...

Transitioning from the "living" areas, with the 36" plank tile, to the "wet" areas, with a different type of tile, will probably result in exposed edges. I haven't laid it all out yet (we don't close...

I don't really know how to describe that. It's a 2750 sq. ft. house, 2 story, and I am tiling the ground floor. It's not cut up too bad I don't think. The 36" tile is planned for every room except...

Tomecanic Supercut 35 question

The Tomecanic 35 lists a 35” max cut length. That is tantalizingly close to the 35.401” that I need for some 36” nominal tile. Does anyone have experience with trying to cut 36” nominal tile on one...

This is a very crude outline. The thicker lines are the walls, thinner lines are the cabinets. The opening top left opens to the living room and is where the kitchen tile begins. Tiles will be...

Tiling around angled cabinet

I am straight laying a kitchen with 16" tiles. The room is basically a big rectangle but the cabinets have a slightly unusual feature in that the section with the sink (roughly 60" section) comes off...
