You're right Jon, those are RONDEC sticks with inside and outside pieces.

Gotta love it-new construction and 2 longest walls are off a fat 1/4".

Nice vitreous substrate free of painted orange peel.Spectralock Marble Beige just blew home owners away.I upsell it as the "Cadillac of grouts".

Nice work as usual LT..... Are you using alpha pads to bullnose that ceramic? Also I would like to see a close up of that drain detail to see the elevation, ect. and basically steal that trick from you


here is one I had to go back and fix a piece for the homeowner. I did the job last year but they dropped something... still looks good.

X Custombuilt

Your work is looking phenomonal as well.Although I am using a wet Alpha polishing machine,Im using some Gator pads.50 and 800.50 shapes and 800 does the rest.Ive discovered that the 50 (for me) is actually faster than the 3/8'' profile wheel.After a lil practice,profiling with the 50 is faster and just as "machined" as using the wheel,but with less time and you dont have to fool w/changing your Alpha tips.I love my Alpha tool and allows me to get creative with custom pieces that have to be customized like the drain surrounds,double edged bullnose,boomerangs etc.It's a great way to create unique installations that can seperate you from the pack.

Panera Bread Cafe. A little quarry,some walls n floors and a pretty cool 2 sided fireplace with 4"x24"s and weaved corners. Pics are before the final wash at the end of the job.

Craig,

The 4th picture did you have trouble cutting that tile? Every time I cut that kind of tile on my cutter it doesn't want to snap clean. Works work. Looks good.

I like that framed detail around the Ebbe drain, sure is different.
