Marble Tile Back Splash

I am a professional hardwood floor installer but also do some tile work and other remodeling. After being hired to install new solid oak floors, the project grew into a complete kitchen remodel for me. After installing the floors and new kitchen, it was time to install the back splash. This consisted of a mesh backed 16"x 12" mosaic marble tile. I used my RYOBI bridge style tile saw to cut the majority of the tile but had to switch to my table top model for fine cutting because this marble tile was very soft and could break apart very easily. The trickiest part was the layout, but once I got going, things went smoothly. The homeowners were very pleased with the finished project.
