Nice work Jeff. Them are some serious pieces of porcelain and in my opinion mitering is the only way to go. It’s a classy look. I don’t think I have ever seen a fireplace that small though.

Fair to him? That comes way second to fair and good for Lou. Unless this is all you’ve got goin Lou why risk putting your ass in a sling? You are doing this as a business I’m guessing.

I don't see any mesh tape on the seams. That alone would produce the cracks in the grout. They aren't going away without it.

That's some funky way of wrapping the tile. I would want to inspect it and check flatness and dimension precision. Also check for different lots. With that pallet setup it wouldn't surprise me to see...

I mix 3 parts portland to 1 90-100 mesh sand for grout. For colorant I'll use iron oxide powder and premix all the grout.

I would build it with mortar the same as a regular curb. Once you have your radiuses and curves figured out you can make some wooden jigs to help carve the mud.

24x24 that weighs 22 lbs? Ok. What did you charge for the 20x20? It's not that much of a difference. Push for a larger grout joint, 3/16 to 1/4. 1/2" trowel and flatten the floor as best you can. If...
