Jeff,
I took down as much as I could before I sealed

but your right easy to cleft them after they're set.

Cleave;

1. to split or divide by or as if by a cutting blow, esp. along a natural line of division, as the grain of wood

just finishing up here

firstly, great work everyone--

This was a real challenge . . . lots of kerdiboard, wedi, mud, you name it.

Went a little stir crazy during the install -- those mosaics can mess with your
mind.

The last couple pics are for paul -- he asked what treatment for the xyz axis
on the oceanside V cap -- I laminated two 45's to beaks then ground and polished the 3 edges to match the curve of the existing v cap -- coulda used a lap polisher, but my hand polisher did the job -- although my right thumb is
little smoother if you know what I mean.

enjoy
