Look at it this way, think of me as your student and take a little credit where it's due.

Thanks for that link Barb.

It seems to me that somewhere down in Jim's part of the world that they have been recovering sunken wood from rivers for some time. There are several outfits which advertise the cut wood for sale in the major woodworking publications.

Man, I must be living under a rock, I knew they did recovery of the trees but I didn't know it was down this way. I bet they have recovered some of the trees I have hit with my prop of my boat, I have sure hit enough of them.

Keith, that is really sharp, I like your door also, I don't think I have ever seen one trimmed like that.

It must have been a trick cutting the tile to fit perfectly around the rounded trim at the top of the door. It looks great!

Keith, I've only read a bit of your thread so far. You're knowledge and experiences are unmatched.
I've been to Japan quite a few times and while on guided tours the quote "this structure was build with Canadian lumber" always is mentioned as well as the sunken lumber in the lakes.

I'm not sure if you have TV reception where you are or if you have any interest in watching what's on these days.
But just in case, were you watching CBC last night and do you have a prediction?

Hi Ralph:

Many thanks for the kind comments.

Yes, we get satellite TV here...but my wife is the TV freak, not I. So I didn't see CBC last night.

Nothing to it Barb...I just sent the two pieces down to Bud and had him cut them for me!

Jim, as you know I make up all my own trim pieces...so I don't mind making them different from the standard fare at HD.

I just kind of look at the door and what surrounds it and then make up any old design which I think might look good.

Hopefully, I will have pics of the set tile on the ensuite counter later.

That's how long the wood was Tim. There's one more piece to stick in that top corner.

Keith in your Post # 4726 (and in both pictures) it appears that a small piece of tile to the left of the left door casing at the top is missing. Maybe not.
I guess I forgot to cut that one in the last batch of tiles you sent to me.

Only a genuine tile guy would notice that!

You're right, there is a tiny triangle shaped piece that needs to be cut...it's just one of the 1,500 pieces I have yet to finish.
