mud work questions

I would like to know everything there is to know about mud work, for floors and walls. I don't have any one I can learn from so I am asking all of you. Last time I looked CTEF was not having there mud corse. If you guys could help it would be great. I have a job coming up that I can float with mud. I have a general idea how to do it, but a walk trew would be great





thanks

You're asking a book-length question, Gavin, so I'll suggest you order John Bridge's book, Tile Your World as a good start on your mud work.

If you can find his older book, Ceramic Tile Setting, I'd recommend that one, too. I think the mud portions in the firs book were more in-depth than in the second book, but that might just be on accounta it's been a while since I've read through either one.

There is also a very lengthy and informative thread in the Hangout on mud work that can give you a lot of information. You'll hafta search that one up, though, unless somebody comes along with a link.

Hi Gavin,

My first book (Ceramic Tile Setting) did a good job on mud floors and a mud tub surround. The latest book (Tile Your World) covers showers thoroughly with some mud floor work.

Both books are on Amazon.com, and Tile Your World is also sold here if you want a signed copy.

Please don't think I'm here to boost book sales. They do cover mud.
