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.
First off, lets cover some of my frugal basics of paint and painting supplies. Never throw away rollers unless you absolutely have to! Remember that most Halloween paints are black and grays, so washing out the color is near impossible. If enough paint is washed out the roller it becomes soft and fluffy and totally re-useable. It will still be black or gray but rinsing out enough paint to save some money isn't that much work.
When all the cardboard has been laid out on the driveway and in the garage, I roll a heavy single coat on, being sure to roll the paint into the creases created from the folding of corners in it's previous life as a box. The advantage to mass painting is the dry time alone from opening up a can again and again. As of this writing, the Home Depot in my town doesn't stock them anymore since they informed me that they are just going to hire some teenagers to use the forms to make the pre-made concrete stones they sell now.....hmm.
The best (smoothest) finish should be obtained by applying a good color coat first. After that has dried well you can polish out any irregularities with fine grit sand paper (2000, 3200, something of that order.). If additional coats are needed you can apply them lightly afterwards. I would wait for clear coat until the finish is blemish free. If you are using gloss paint for the color coats make sure that the coats are thoroughly dry between coats. Sometimes that might take a day or two. A trick that a friend uses for his funny car models is to use finger nail polish as it dries very smooth.
Retail Stores - Harbor Freight did not forget its roots. The company started by selling damaged freight goods and so the owners decided to open a retail store and see if turns out to be a success. Fortunately, it was. The whole purpose of the retail store is to sell salvaged products and returned items at a much cheaper price. It was a huge success and the company opened several branches all over the country.
Unfortunately, the finished workbench doesn't fold completely flat. But the workbench does function as I desired: it's a sturdy, portable workbench that I can easily carry around the house or out into the back yard to exercise my woodworking prowess. Adding a few extra speed clamps and a portable carpenter's 6" vise, and I'm good to go (my first project was to make and attach two ¼" wooden facing pieces to that 6" carpenter's vise's metal jaws).
