You do that when placing a bonded mud bed over concrete, Andy, but with your substrate I don't think I'd bother.

How thick will your mud be at the thinnest point?

My opinion; worth price charged.

I need to double check, but i the thinnest spot will probably be around 1". Average thickness is probably around 1.5"

It's not going to hurt anything but like CX said, it's probably not necessary. I would tape off the hardwood several inches in case any cement gets under the notched ends of the straight edge.

Got the mud down today. Went pretty well. How long should I let it cure/dry before tiling?

Thanks!

Over night is long enough. Looks good.

Yep, nice work.

As Davy cautioned above, mask off that wood before you begin setting your tiles. Anything containing Portland cement can stain some species of wood and you'll never get it out.

My opinion; worth price charged.
