Hi John

Any chance you might be able to take a photo with your phone of the combination for a 1 meter wfo and sms to me on the number you called the other day.

If not I will go and buy some and play

Cheers colin

Cant do much more as i'm waiting to get brick saw back with utahbeehiver [and others that inspired him] mods applied to tray. Now to get some more supplies calsil board this week. Anyhow thought i would load some photo's. Had a little issue with position but now right.

Colin,

Nice looking floor tiles. Minimizes seams. A couple tips on arch form that I learned during my build first, leave plenty of release gap on bottom of form at least a 1/2" and position with the right height with shims, second, cut yourself a hand hold in arch so you can wiggle the arch out after laying arch, third, save arch form as a template for your future door. I'm keeping an eye on your build.

Thx Russell

Those pointers are as good as done/done/done. The idea for tiles and 75mm thick was for less seams but came at a price [mainly freight].

Quite nervous with you watching your build is extremely well executed.

Cheers Colin

Hi Russell

I allowed for the arch to be raised it is 12" high allowing for it to be raised. Always wondered why there were cutouts in the arch template now i know. Didnt want to ask as I thought it would be a stupid question .

Have wondered
a: have i made it too small at 1m / 39" as it looks small with only the internal template marked out on the tiles.
b: arch at 20" wide is it wide enough

Hmmmmmm

Gudday
My first arch was a failure. The secound I did this way. Cut 2 templates the same. The first screw 2 horizontal battens to the first. Then screw the secound template to the battens . You then take your circular saw and set it to cut the depth of the template and cut through both templates vertically.
You will still have to use some shims on the bottom but basically you can then just unscrew the into 4 parts which are easy to remove at the end.

Regards dave
