No, John, I found it with a Google image search. I wanted to be sure it was squill, because I'd never looked at my squill from a nose length away. Can't focus that close anymore.

Gotcha, Jeff. And if I end the bullnose on the shower wall without turning the corner, what do I do with that 1/4" of bare stud that abuts the curb? My only guess is to CBU to the stud's front...

The greatest advantage to the 1/4" is that I can handle a sheet myself, but I need a helper for the 1 /2".

Jeff-- Ha! The message was so subtle that it passed me by. Its source must have been divine, or sublime, or subliminal.
