I like creating with my hands. I especially enjoy creating useful items out of wood. Unfortunately, my self-designed and self-built garage 6 X 3 foot workbench has a tendency to become littered with miscellaneous "stuff", and I find myself at my wit's end attempting to build projects on a piece of plywood strung across two folding sawhorses. Not ideal, I will agree. I do appreciate the convenience of being able to take down and put away the components of my makeshift working surface. What I don't like is that the working surface is not that stable and requires a separate set of clamps to hold the working top to the sawhorses.
Now we will not go into detail but say your front porch would need first a rubber backer cemented down them the tile set in the high pressure special use cement. For our purposed the Pre mixed Mastic will work fine. Comb out the adhesive to leave rows with valleys like combing a child's hair you want even rows no places with a big blob. Then set your edge with the bull nose tile, and start moving across the wall with the full tiles. Cutting tile is done with a diamond saw you can rent these. If you have multiple projects you might buy an inexpensive one from Harbor Freight. But consider finding a friend and borough one. You only need to rent one for the really big tile like 12 inch cut on a diagonal because this makes an 18 inch cut across the diagonal of the tile.
However, the power of e-commerce across the U.S. can never be underestimated, especially around the specialized strategic sales of seasonal holidays, such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, plus the usual Memorial Day weekend deals and Cyber Monday clearance sales. Amazon stated last year that, at its peak, it had actively sold over 300 items every single second of the day!
Take it step by step and focus on one thing at a time. After all, you are doing this for fun! There is no need to rush; explore the techniques and information at your leisure. Watch their free video on how to mix your paints. Order a quick change brush and begin to think about your compressor. While you do this, you can watch some of the videos on that site to see what's possible with these tools! Soon you will know what area you are most interested in focusing on.
What you want to achieve is a small, glowing fire in the fire box. That fire should last, unattended, for 45-60 minutes, and the temperature should remain steady. During this 45-60 minute burn, you should preheat one or two sticks of wood on top of the fire box. This preheating will help the wood burn faster and produce less thick, white smoke (more on smoke color in a bit). When you add a stick of wood to the fire box, open the intake about halfway. This will give your fire a little breath of air. When the preheated stick catches fire, close the air intake back down to about one quarter.
I have managed to get fairly smooth finishes by polishing the surface prior to my first coat and building up the paint in light layers. I also sometimes use flat paints and a final gloss coat that usually results in a smooth finish. There really is not a science to good paint finish; it is more of an art that each person develops on their own.
