If you were a customer I would use the Schluter joint James mentioned because it's going to move and the caulk will have to be touched up periodically.

You can rip the bullnose into equal widths. Schluter sells outside corners and inside corners if you buy the rondec. You just have to make straight cuts to the corner.

Hand made stuff can work you over if you obsess over everything. It's meant to be rustic and has to be installed with that in mind. I would use a 1/8" mostly because sizing probably varies piece to...

Sorry I assumed water spots meant they were darker. Either of the 2 sealers are fine. Won't hurt to seal it just follow the directions on label.

Needs to be heated up and old material removed. It really should be pulled apart and reset. Probably cracked because it wasn't filled and pulled together correctly. $250 is reasonable, it will take a...

Get some sandpaper and block and smooth the edge some. Probably a combo of cheap blade, saw, and possibly wrong rpm. I would grout the corner.

Just a random thought but how much sealer did you apply and how long did the shower dry out before you applied it? I would wonder if even a small amount got down to the pan and is sitting on even a...

Its cultured marble, more likely a chemical reaction. I would suggest a bigger escutcheon.

Tomecanic and Rubi are worth looking into. I think part of Sigma's deal is to differentiate itself from the competition. It looks rather close to the Montolit. My Tomecanic is heavy but when I get...

I would think there is a support running from the ceiling to the 90 of the 2 glass panels. The large panel is too big to leave just attached on the wall. That being the case it's doable.

Chipping is the only real draw back to porcelain slabs. The edges will take the brunt of the abuse, you can repair it but making it disappear completely is not as easy or guaranteed as stone counters.

Montolit and Rubi make good cutters as well if you don't like the design. I don't own that cutter but I wouldn't not buy it based on the operation. Probably take a day to get use to it.
