Re: Cut Of The Day


Most of the crazy cuts seem to come with larger tile but everyone is going with 12x12's lately

There's some excellent work in this thread, great job guys

I'm just starting to get into some tile myself, just laid a kitchen floor and starting a master shower remodel with another contractor next week, and both jobs are 12x24's, Yeah the walls on the shower will be 12x24s, vertical, a glass mosaic border around 4', then switching to horizontal up to the vaulted ceiling line. Someone please tell me that isn't normal. At least it's not my job..whatever floats ya boat..

Also interested in how my contractors doing his pan, ive never done one.. so much to read so little time

Keep posting some great cuts, great thread and wish I had something better to contribute!

No such thing as normal in a custom shower. If they can dream it and pay for it I can set it.....as long as they don't want it quick

Re: Cut Of The Day


The back wall had a false wall that I removed for more room so I ended up 62" instead of 58.5... It didn't matter where I started cuz I was gonna end up with a weird cut somewhere. After the fact a 13" tile would've been better but I jus had to go with the flow. Sorry I'm not as perfect as ya'll

Re: Cut Of The Day


Come on dawg, he's just funnin' ya.

I hate when goofy cuts end up around a niche. If I have my way, I custom build the niche so it doesn't matter where the grout joints fall. However, you sometimes get a customer that is very specific about the niche placement. Not much you can do then other than make some sweet cuts like you did!

Not to say I've never done anything like that. A handful or three times...

But I was very serious about him being able to do that cut. I couldn't.

Do what I do Dawg, master the 3/4" grout joint. When you've done that for years like I have, you'll become proficient enough to bullnose it--yes, w/out tools-- and no one will know the difference, especially when the niche is painted. If you'd like tips on that touch, lemme know as not everyone can do it--it's quite the niche.

Re: Cut Of The Day


I would have just cut it straight through and then crazy glued the little pieces back on.

Nice work
