Morning everyone.. hope you all had as good a weekend as I did! I had my little girl this weekend so I didnt get as much done in the garage as I wanted.. but I did make good progress.
My rope light came in.. so got to work on installing it.
Used the router to make an escape hole for it
Here it is in action..
After that I could drill the tap holes
And a nice little teaser picture of it coming together some
I also went and picked up a sheet of backer board and started cutting it to fit. Used a skill saw to cut it.. that SUCKED! If you go this route find a way to secure it down well.. the vibrations will kill you and WEAR A MASK!
I am going to have a 1" gap on each side because my top is 2" wider than the board.. but I figure that will not be enough stress to cause any cracks.. at least I am hoping not!
Tonight I am going to try and drill the holes for the plumbing and start figuring out how I am going to space the tile out. I have no experience cutting tile so expect me to try to find pieces that mostly fit in smaller areas than trying to cut a bunch.
