Last night, my Dad helped me and my wife put up our backsplash.
First off, my Dad had passed away 4 years ago now. Sometime before he passed, he handed me a bag full of tile nippers, hand glass tile cutter and and small tile etcher cutter/snapper for 8 in tiles. Over the years, I had moved that bag of tools around from spot to spot in my garage. Often asking myself why I even have it as I thought I would never need it.
Well, last night, after mixing my thinset and letting it slake, I started to hook up my neighbors wet saw and was reading through the directions. I thought, dang, this is a lot of saw for these little pieces....then I ask my self, where is that bag of tile tools my dad gave me.
It was right where I expected...I was able to cut these tiles with these tools with such ease, that the wet saw would have been overkill and too time consuming (as it would be outside and lots of trips up and down the stairs would have just made this man tired (exercise????))!
Anyway, thanks Dad!
All, here are the results.
(Oh, and my fridge is set to be delivered tomorrow! this project....this basement is nearly done!!!!)
