he actually made his own water holder from a piece of plexi and cored all holes with a grinder and core bit. a couple did chip a bit, a little epoxy and we now call it a vein.

Thanks Jon I appreciate that.

Opie that's gotta be labor and materials at $12 a ft. No way is FL getting $12 a ft for labor. Even mud set I've seen there or $3 a ft.

no shoes? I've seen your thinset bag hat, surely you could make a nice pair of shoes too match.
