Mark, that's not a good bonding surface for your tiles, but you can do it if you want. Better would be to cover the plywood with CBU or drywall, then tile.

1. It's not at all unheard of to cut every tile in a shower layout, but that's up to you and your designer. It's either what she suggests or three columns of 24" tiles and a...

Welcome, Russ. :)

How is the bench constructed?

What method of waterproofing are you using in the shower?

Is this the same shower with the "shower tower" in it?
