Looking for suggestions

A person whose opinion about these things I trust recommended that I run the tile past the edge of the tub. The tub is 30" from front (the part you step over) to back (the wall where the soap dish could go). He recommended that I run the tile out 36 inches. I have Kerdi ran out 32" at this point. I figured past this didn't need the waterproofing, having a shower door, not a curtain. My original plan was not to have the tile go all the way to the floor because I was concerned about the Jolly/oak baseboard meeting point. After actually seeing it, I think I should take the tile that extends past the tub all the way to the floor.
1. Does running the tile down to the floor seem like the best option for me at this point, or should I just leave it level with how it is already?
2. If yes, how do I make my cut (I have a wet saw) around the curved edge of the tub?
3. What is the best way to have the Jolly/oak baseboard meet? I was thinking about return mitering the baseboard tight against the exposed edge of the Jolly so no wood grain would be seen.

Hopefully I pasted this link with a picture in here properly

Definitely run the tile past the edge of the tub. Even with a curtsin / door, water seems to find it's way down the outside edge of the tub. Tile will keep the sheetrock from turning to mush. I would go at least few inches beyond the tub

There's an article in the Liberry on cutting profiles with a wet saw. Basically you just nibble the profile away with the blade.

Here's the link


Good..Fast..Cheap. Pick any 2...can't have all three
