Haha, it was a cut off.... Thank goodness! I'll get some pictures up tomorrow when I grout it. Pretty cool house, have a lake you can see from kitchen window, and a 1/2 mile drive through thier woods to the driveway. Even a small bridge over the lake!

Got to tile a shower last week for a change. 2'x2' tile with some deco's and a few other odds n ends. The tile had some kinda slick nano-tech coating that even duct tape had a hard time stickin too - great for the cleaning lady, not so great for the installer. Gonna grout with SpectraLock natural gray. Ordering some ColorRite sanded silicone to match too - haven't tried this version of their caulks yet.

Not my work....it's the guy who trained I.

He was building a seat,and was asking my opinion etc.
Looks like he glued 4 pieces of tile together,and then tiled over that with field,and BN.

I half kidded him at the time,and told him to stand on it,after he was done lol.

Looks like a better bench,but solid porcelain or ceramic lol.

Rich I like that idea for a corner bench. No metal and no screws into the wall.

Got the shelf lightning in, and 9 Baldwin hinges which were mortised in perfectly if I do say so myself.

12 24 overly shiny rectified. It is always a bit concerning when you pop open the first box to find corner protectors and each tile covered in plastic, but ended up being a great tile to work with. Virtually no lippage without needing clips. This is bathroom tile at a new sports bar. Monday I get to start some fun mosaic stuff up in the front area. Most Bestest part is this is a very laid back and simple commercial gig so it's a great environment to do some training with my new hire. Good week.

The screed with the hand pulls in the right photo, where did you get it? There used to be a company in Pennsylvania that sold them. They are gone.

That actually feels like kind of a cheap one and they don't have one longer than seven feet but it came from Menards
