I have decided to cut a straight edge and put in a 1/4 piece were the stair was so that the bottom is even, then will put 1/2 exterior grade plywood over the particle board, make sure all is level and then put 1/4 backer board over that. Then put my 12 x 12 tiles down. I am hoping i will have enough room. I did notice a saw that cuts sideways in the hardware store (looks like a trowel) anyone have any experience with one of these?

I believe you are talking about a dovetail/jamb saw...is it fine toothed...I use one to undercut dooor jambs so the new material can slide under them.


A hundred yards a day (residential), keeps the bill collectors away....
