Brian, I didn't say it didn't work, I just said it didn't make it easy.

Drumstick works great on tighter joints, and I gotta disagree, it makes it a lot easier to grout, it's a little more time though. Never used my finger to stick joints, they are tore up enough to put them through that would be rough.

Easier and easy are two different things.

Customer mentions using chiseled edge tile I mention the upcharge to grout it because it ain't easy.

we used the drumstick on wall tile in the early 90's on wall tile.
you float the walls, hit the joints with the drumstick and buffed
the leftover off the walls.

Hey Bill,
When you do it,how bout some pictures and a running lesson on muddin!
Hey Dave-- it's already been done! Matter of fact, it was in YOUR neck of the woods-- in Hartford.

Jason-- Not sure when I'm going to get to it, but it's got to be done before labor day weekend. Adam's getting married that weekend and we're going to have house guests from all over the country.

I've seen it before, and it's one of my favorite stones. Really nice looking stuff.

Nice job, Dave!

Great looking job Dave......as usual. How big were those little inset lights? They look tiny, but cool.

I used that silver trav once, beautiful stuff. As said, nice fixtures. And I see you managed to find and install a bookmatch pair behind the tub!! Nice!

Very nice job ! Looks to me like there might possibly be another bookmatching pair on the backwall of the tub, can't see all of either, but it looks close.
