Here is a picture of the finished wall.

Hi Kim (Hauner) from Interstyle

I want to thank you for sharing those very helpful tips on making mosaics. It would have been a rough road trying to cement all those tiles one at a time.

Here is a picture of the finished wall.

And to all the good folks at the JOHN BRIDGE tile forum. Without your help, I could not have done this successfully.

Many Thanks,
Bob

Hey Bob,

Looks very nice. Is that a niche in a shower wall?

Danny

Thanks Mike

My next project is the Vaniy top. I'm going to use some fossils in the splash.

Have I gone off the deep end ?

Great job Bob! If I had a smiley that was tipping his hat, he'd be tipping it to you.

Bob (DIYMAN):

Fantastic!

We've been kicking the notion around of creating a new photo album for memorable projects that members have completed. This fantastic niche of yours certainly is worthy of inclusion and prompts me to get back to work with the other moderators to get this Album off the ground. I'd like yours to be the first one included. Not sure when we will have the "ribbon cutting" ceremony so keep in touch and don't go away, you hear.

In the meantime, how about a little write-up on what you used, how you did it, maybe a few words on Kim Hauner’s (from Interstyle) role, etc? You can either post that up here or in a PM to me.

Great job.

Beautiful,

Please share with us the details of how you did this project? Did you have to grind down and cut each piece?

Once again Nice Work

Thanks Mike2

I will work on getting the details of the work and posting them. It will take a few days so be patient with me while I piece together (no pun intended) the details.

Take all the time you need Bob. Gives us a good excuse to stand around some more. We're a patient bunch of standers 'round here.

'Course we have some sitters and kneelers too. Not too many runners hanging around though. Flybys.
