"Wishfulfarmer" asked via email, "How do you get all those tiles cut on a slant? Do you live near a store to do that?" I'm using a tile saw that looks sort of like a table saw. It has a water tray under the blade so that the blade stays wet while cutting. Surprisingly it does a good job for a little saw. The cuts are straight and clean. Quite professional looking. Considering that we are laying tile in most of the house, the saw has been an excellent investment. Once I am done using it for floor tiles I plan to keep it for awhile. I'd like to try my hand at some artistic work with cutting coral and lava.
