Tools of the Trade

Before we even started tiling, we saw that the ends would need custom fitted tiles. We'd have to cut the tiles to size.

This is what Eric started out with first... this scores the tile first and then snaps it to the right size. 

It was cost effective and fairly accurate. But... it wasn't accurate enough. So, we had to upgrade:

This is an electric saw with a water bath (under that metal plate) that kept the blade continuously wet. It would make an awful racket, but it was better for getting smaller, trickier tile sizes.

Next time... the shower is complete!
