Introduction

I am a new member to your forum, and just wanted to introduce myself. I am Joey from East Central Mississippi. Have not personally done a tile job, but have seen several of the local "tile guys' around here do it wrong for some time now.

Since carpentry is kinda hit and miss right now, I am branching out to tile; I have 3 prospective jobs I am bidding, and I have turned down a few in the past b/c I felt unqualified. I have no doubt I can do it better than anyone around (the proper way that is), especially with the possibility you guys may lend me an ear.

Enough for now.
