Did you have to make at least one cut on every tile?
Not every tile Barb...just most of them!

The truth is that looks just super. I love doing stuff like that where the imagination can be allowed to flow and wander around a little. I don't get to do that much of that creative stuff on a regular basis.

Every once in a while a customer will tell me; "There's where I want some tile Bud, do something with it." I just want to hug those people. Your overall project is like that to me.

Bud, do you have a thread here on the forum with pictures of the floor designs you've done?

I do not! I quit taking pictures for years and years and only just started again about three years ago. I have a few pictures scattered around here somewhere but couldn't tell you where they are. I have a few hundred on my hard drive but when I try to post them to a website somewhere they always seem to elude me. I even went as far as to put all of them in folders at one time then somehow the damned folder contents got mixed randomly and that made me mad enough to just say screw it.

My problem is I am "digitally challenged" in several ways. Not the least of which is with digital photography simple as it has become. I have had a couple of the early digital cameras but neither of them produce the quality I like and the built-in lenses aren't usually conducive with taking pictures in tight quarters which is what I need.

Many years ago I was a student of photography and had fish-eye lenses and telephotos and all that other stuff back then but that has all gone away and I just never indulged myself again.

One day I'll get interested again and pull out some stuff.

I know I know: Too much information.

I'll try this and see what happens just for fun.

This is a sandstone and travertine job I had something to do with about three years ago.

It appears I have loaded it as an attachment. I have no idea how to get the picture in this frame. See what I mean: "DIGITALLY CHALLENGED".

Well, I dunno...I suppose it's OK for a guy with only a third of a CENTURY experience!

At least you know now to go down to "manage attachments" and follow the prompts.

That part is easy enough until I want to post a picture then some copy then another picture then more copy...stuff like that.

My bigger issue is when I get into my "pictures" the damned thumb nails are too small and I can't tell one picture from another. That's why the fireplace is there now. Hell, I couldn't identify anything else in the thumbnails and the fireplace was easy. I suppose there is a way to browse larger samples but I certainly don't know how to do that. That's because I am "DIGITALLY CHALLENGED".

Bud, you should be able to increase the size of your thumbnails...possibly by a slider at the bottom of your page. I'm not sure how it works with Windoze.

I'll look into that, I'll bet you are correct. Hell they have thought of most everything else.

When you put it like that I'm thinking I don't feel all that well right now and maybe I should have my warm milk and retire for the evening. Eleven a.m. comes mighty early in the morning for me these days.



P.S. My spellcheck doesn't like your Windoze.

For me I right click on the thumbnail and then click "open". That is some fine work Bud.

Sure enough they have a slider to increase the size of the thumbnails. Why didn't I think of that. I'll play around one more time for practice then I'll butt-out.

Well crap I lost one somehow, Oh well, that was fun.

The top picture is just a small everyday tub. The tile is travertine mixed with yellow onyx. I designed this one and had great fun installing it with the exception that the yellow onyx has a super high mortality rate.

The next picture is just a wine bar in the great-room kitchen. Limestone and factory mosaics.

The next two are at the entry where the ceiling is thirty feet high with a crystal chandelier. The chandelier is on a power winch so that it can be electrically lowered for cleaning and changing the bulbs.

This was a great house to work on I have all kinds of tile work in this place on three floors.


ARRRRGH!!! Just my luck...the software split the pages on me.
