Replace tile on DINING table


I have tile on my oak dining table and looking to possibly replace the tile with bugger tile, is that possible?? If so, how big of a job is it and what would I need to do to re-tile my dining table?

Thanks!!!

I have no idea except to glue it down.

However, please do not post questions in the "How To Guides" section.
Moved to "General Discussion"

Thank you.

A picture would help.

Using bigger tile may result in the necessity to cut the tiles resulting in cut edges that wouldn't look right. What do you think of that probability?

How about cutting the table, maybe resulting in a tile table instead of an oak table.......

I guess that depends on how the existing tile was installed. I've never seen a wooden table with tile on it so have no idea how it might have been done. Tile isn't usually installed directly onto wood so there may be some sort of backer board. Or, since this isn't a "normal" use of tile, it may just be glued to the wooden top. You may need to pry one off to see.
