Another question if I may. It might be time to rename this thread too...

This shower has a "floating" marble bench which I'm installing on two big brackets that are tied back into the studs and waterproofed with WEDI Sealant.

Pictures attached. How would you go about tiling this? I'm thinking I should have the bench back against the walls and cut the tile around it so the tile 'falls' on the bench. Do do that I think I would leave the bench unattached as I tile, slide it out a bit to put the tile behind and I can easily trace the cutout. Then adhere the bench and tile around it.

An easier option might be to leave the bench unattached and tile the wall as normal. Then adhere the bench, butting it up to the tile. I would caulk around the joints regardless.

Any thoughts or experience with this?

Thanks again!

If I had the option to tile the wall first and then install the bench, I think I'd do that.

My opinion; worth price charged.

That would for sure be easier and less testing of my amateur cutting skills!

As I understand your bench, I'd likely not butt the bench surface against the wall, but leave a gap there and leave it open.

My opinion; worth price charged.
