I'm not convinced that the spot where the water is pooling is a low spot, it's possible that the drain is a high spot (in the slope). What happens if you drag that straight edge back and put the low...

Just make sure it is a "dry' diamond blade, unless you plan on adding water to the mix. A 4" dry blade will work fine and is an extremely useful tool for cutting things your wet tile saw cannot,...

Jess,

Is there standing water or just wet grout, a little hard to tell by the photo. Also hard to tell if the floor is properly sloped. Is it sloped at all?

I zoomed in on the photo best I...

That is true, just how it turned out, not planned. I don't think I would have balked at any of those end tiles in the corner being an inch or more.

Bevel cuts can definately cause your blade to walk. If you can lower the blade and do the bevel in multiple passes it should work better.

Chris, the good news is that Mrs. Chris did not direct you to install 24" X 24" tiles in this bath. You are tiling with 2X2 Hex so you have some tolerance for un-flatness. But do try to remove any...

3) Angle grinder with a dry blade...
