Hi, this tip might be useful for those who do DIY tiling but haven’t got a large tile cutting machine or the ‘table area’ (where the tile is placed) is not quite big enough to allow a large tile to have a tiny section cut off. Normally, one wouldn’t need to cut off a sliver of tile so long as tile spacing and pattern is set out first, however sometimes you will encounter a wall or some other obstruction that isn’t flat or level etc which means some careful trimming is needed.
You will need;
Electric wet-cut tile cutter preferably semi or professional model.
(DIY grade tools wear out quickly and built down to a price)
Cargo or light duty ratchet strap.
Section of smooth thick MDF
Plastic wedge blocks from a laminate floor fitting kit.
Strap the piece of MDF to the cutter using the ratchet strap. Not too tight as you will have to place the wedge blocks between MDF and machine to set the distance from the MDF ‘guide’ to the blade. Adjust the wedge blocks to either extend or close up the distance between the MDF guide and the blade. Bit fiddly I know but can be useful for cutting very thin sections of tile.
This tile was in fact one of a handful in the box that were slightly oversized just enough to prevent it sitting within the spacers. Also, some were scratched and the glaze wasn’t thick enough on some of the edges and corners. In my opinion this is caused by bad handling before the tile is ‘fired’ so the raw tile can distort or isn’t moulded properly. Just wondering if some ‘seconds’ got boxed up with the quality tiles at the factory?
Create your very own, customizable fascinator hat in leather. Using a leather molding technique, you can convert old leather pieces into a stylish, well-made hair accessory.
In this video I’ll show you how to get started with molding the leather, adding a lining and securing the edges. Part 2 of this tutorial will be presented in a separate video and will discuss ways of adding a trim and embellishments to your new hat.
