Thread: Cut tile for sharp curves?

    Cut tile for sharp curves?

    We are using a 6x6 tile. My PB said he will have to slide it to 3x6 for a few areas where the turns are sharp. Is this the best way to do it, other than choosing a 2x2 mosaic tile? I think there are only two places he will need to do this... on both sides of the swim out love seat. I have not been able to find any pictures of this.

    Your PB is telling it like it is. You'll never notice it. 6x6 tile is so much better than anything else, it's not even funny.
