Hi & thanks for looking at my post.
I am in the process of deciding on how to tile my countertop of the outdoor kitchen/bbq. Over the period of time, the thing slowly grew into a 17' X 9' monster
At the bottom of the "cabinet" i have a 6" wide footrest that will be receiving a quartzite trim on top of it. Trying to figure out how to "tile" the apron of the countertop. I've been recommended a Schluter Systems as a trim piece around the top edge of the countertop, but...
Looks like even if I use the Schluter, although it's gona cost me an arm and possibly a leg considering my 17' length just on one side of the bbq, I will still need to add tile pieces under the trim to finish it off. Since I will be using quartzite stone (~1/2") on my footrest of the bbq, I would like to "tie it in" together with my countertop.
My questions; - Is it feasible/doable to incorporate the quartzite pieces, like whatever I have as leftovers from my footrest into the apron? My apron is most likely will be built from a 2x4 (maybe two of them) flatside under my counter with cement board pieces on the faceside and the bottomside of it. If I extend the bottomside piece of the cement board past the front of the 2x4 enough to accommodate for the thickness of the quartzite. Am I giving enough of the support to the quartzite? Can I use modified thinset to permanently "glue" the quartzite pieces to both the apron and the footrest of the bbq?
