LAYOUT - Start with a small plan. Possibly a countertop or backsplash in the pantry or possibly a sink backsplash in the bathroom. Using a paper and pencil form the surface you are working to use tile to and holding each dimension of the work.

COUNTERTOP - The countertop must be very firm and solid. A dual layer of ¾ plywood or ceramic tile cement backer board and a layer of ¾" plywood is a minimum.

Cement backer board is available under various business names but is specifically made for ceramic tile. Make sure it is adjusted correctly.

Cutting can be done with a power saw and carbide edge but causes a big deal of dust so cut it outside and use protection glasses and a dust mask. Backer board in sink areas is recommended.
