Chevron pattern angles

I have a job bid that will require cutting 9x36 planks into chevron pieces and installing on a bath floor and wall.
I figured the cuts at 45 degree angles so the install should be fairly easy. I have a laser that puts down a straight line and two 45's. Makes herringbone easier too.

My question is what if they want the angle to be 100 degrees instead of 90? Is there somewhere that talks about layout for chevron? I did a search and couldn't find anything that talked about layout. That is getting into math that I'm not used to.
Thanks

For something like that, I would probably cut the angles the way I want and not give them a choice.

Absolutely Davy, I might just double the price if they want something different. But I would like to find out how to figure out a job that has specific angles. You know with pinterest and HG tv now, you never know what wants a client is going to have.

Cut a few pieces and lay it out, they'll probably like it. Don't say anything about any other angles.

In a chevron pattern you have parallel lines and 45degrees lines -- angle on cuts 45 or 135 --
The very minor deviation from 45 degree gets you in trouble.

Unless parallel lines are not required any other patern could be done --- custom design ---.

Eurob, the other thing is that the room is only 5' wide. You would hardly get one parallel line with that width if you did any other degree. I qualified to the contractor 45 and bid it off a picture. Contractor thought that it was herringbone LOL. So don't think they will fret over the angle.

Why bother with a chevron pattern in a small space and a large tile ?

If you could get 5 rows in 5' it should look more balanced for the chevron pattern.
