Default Hi from Colorado!

Total newbie here but really want to get into woodworking. Don't have a lot, just a Dewalt table saw and a Bosch router (MRC23EVSK combo plunge and fixed) with the Kreg benchtop table. We just tiled our bathroom so the first project for the router is the baseboard trim using a roman ogee bit. That's about it, excited to be here and learn a bunch of new stuff!

I've only tiled a few times before so don't have very much knowledge but I can tell you I'm definitely happy I spent the 250 bucks for a wet tile saw. I got the Ridgid 7" wet tile saw and it worked great and cut some nice smooth edges. We are very happy with the way the bathroom turned out and that tile saw, along with a decent angle grinder to cut the curved edges for the toilet made it so much easier. Good luck with your project!

Thanks .
I have purchaced a Dewalt tile saw . Mine is a little complicated, as I want a niche to . Which is going to make me throw fits figuring out how to get the tiles to line up perfectly so it looks like it was supposed to be there .
I'm going with overpriced Kerdi board for the walls , and bought a pre made niche made from Kerdi board .
The back wall for the alcove is not framed yet , so it leaves me a lot of options .
This should be interesting . I almost got to a point where I was going to buy those cheap plastic walls that you glue to the cement board or whatever other medium a guide decides to put back there .
Gotta figure out how to solder copper pipes and valves together this weekend .

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Rick, on the floors for sure either use Schluter Ditra or Strata Mat uncoupling membranes. Costs more but you won't get cracked tiles or grout joints after. When soldering copper when the flame turns green it's hot enough. Hold the flame on one side and when the solder starts to melt held on the backside of the joint is another sign it's ready. Use Kester soldering paste in the joint before you start. Make sure the copper is clean and bright. If you have to use emery cloth to clean the pipe up first always go around and never up and down. If you have a leak, pull the joint apart and stuff a wad of rolled up bread dough in the upstream part of the joint. Otherwise when you try to resolder the joint any water in the pipe will form steam which will blow streaks through the new solder job and you will still have a leak. Take any screen off the appliance at the end of that run so that the bread will blow out without plugging the spout.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
