Well, I guess it's a matter of preference more than anything....I didn't say it was a problem, but for me, I wouldn't want a bunch of chopped up little pieces right next to my 4x4 tiles. In my opinion, that would look pieced together and the contrast in size would look more like someone didn't plan it out and was forced to come up with a half baked solution at the end of the project. I'll admit, it's possible to do it, but I don't see it often and I believe it's because of what I just mentioned.

I'd be more inclined to not use tile at all rather than put ton of effort into a project that ends up looking less than desirable in my opinion. Also, those pieces would have to be very small, at least a half inch wide or smaller...I wouldn't want to work with pieces that small with a tile saw, I like my fingers where they are

Well then...
Solid surfacing is right up your alley. It doesn't take the thought or artistic ability or engineering skills that a one-of-a-kind project created by a true craftsman does. Why does no-brainer now come to mind?

I hope you're not saying there's no skill in solid surface countertop manufacturing or installation....all I'm saying is that I've worked on many, many commericial and residential projects and I've never see anyone do as you said. I'll admit it takes skill to do as you said, but keep in mind, this is a do it yourself website and the people that are here don't have your clear level of expertise and I'm sure they don't have the tools that you do. And you may want to ask yourself why it's a "one of a kind project" and not something that many people do
