good learning videos?

Hi all, I've lurked for a while, and now have the confidence to give tiling a shot. I'm above average handy, having worked construction for a long time, but that was all rough framing and exteriors. I'm not a great "touch" guy - but have long admired the guys working inside who can finish a job with final finish touches. I figure the only way to learn is to jump in on my own place.

I've got a bathtub replacement I'm taking on, which should be pretty basic. Pull out old tub, put in new, tile up about 5 feet from the new tub. I got John's book - and have started to read it.

I wanted to ask you all - what videos do you like? I know HD is frowned on a little bit, but this video here: HD Video

has so far been the best comprehensive "here's what your experience will be like", giving a good idea from soup to nuts of the process. I'd love to watch more, with different takes, approaches, and tips. Any suggestions?? I figure this crowd has probably found the gems out there.

There's a few good videos on youtube, lots of basic tiling videos and some specific ones that gave us a number of "ahhh ha!" moments to cherish.

Some seem ok with general information here and there... some are obviously without merit. My favorites are the professionals who care enough to set up a camera and carefully explain the right way to do it (or how NOT to do it, those make the biggest impression).

I am still looking for a video of someone actually setting hex tile but it doesn't seem like anyone cares quite that much about hex. wah

gueuzeman's youtube videos are cool. After recognizing his name from this forum (cuz I search and search and he always posts!) I watched them all even if they didn't pertain to my project. Good stuff there gueuzeman.

Gimme gimme more gueuzeman!

If you're gonna kick a pine cone... consider shoes!
