The pads I have go from 80 to 3000 grit. I believe the second grit is either 120 or 150. I've only used them to polish edges of marble when tiling showers so I don't have much experience polishing...

I see now, the slab isn't poured yet. How you have the slab poured depends on the type base you decide to use. Like John said, it's best to recess the slab a few inches in the shower area. Then it...

Yeah, looks good. I try to get my sticks about 4 inches from the corners. If you have enough sticks, you can leave the sticks in the back wall while mudding the end walls. Then when mudding the end...

Hi John. A mixer really helps as long as you have a place to wash it out. Not a problem usually on new construction.

With the trailer, you may have room to store sand. That would save money.

The picture above shows the ring bolted down but the ring is left off when installing the membrane. You can see the 4 weepholes, there's one between the heads of each bolt. That's where the pebbles...

Jim, I'll post a pic of a divot drain. There's a sloped mud bed under the paint on membrane. I believe the membrane is Aqua Defense from Mapei along with their fabric. I put down one coat, then add...
