Thanks Davy.

How soon do you scratch the mud? Watching videos, it seems like people get a very smooth scratch. But whether I used ditra trowel or lath, I can hear (and see) small chunks of mud falling all around me. My scratched furrows are just ragged as heck.

As far as float strips, the shower walls are just shy of 37” wide and I was going to use my 3’ “L” straight edge. That’s why I was thinking set my 3/4” wide float strips right in the corner, and use a really small sawing motion (like 1/2” side to side). But I take it that’s not a good idea?
