    I just lost the tread on a trailer tire. I picked it up from the road.

    Decision time. Should I glue it back on with modified, or unmodified? Wrap it with Kerdi, or Ditra? I stapled it on for now. Only 200 miles to go. LOL

    I swear, every time I use someone else's trailer, I have a wheel/tire problem. Sheeeesh..

    That's a scary thought, loosing some tread off the trailer tire. We paid extra for the radials when we bought our trailer and sure glad we did.

    Of course, fix the tread with Kerdi backed by drywall. :D

    Tliing looks good! Yer hired. :)

    I won't assemble it til I get it to the Utah house. Then I'll at least make sure its squared up. Anything else I need to do to get it tuned/broken in? First cuts will just be rips. No miters til I see how it feels. I'm excited to frame the niches.

    Thinking about getting a profile wheel also. I'll be placing 4" pieces at chair rail height just for a detail, and something aside from a square, cut edge would be nice.

    Maybe get a better blade than the the Dewalt one -- may work with the soft travertine -- .

    Are you going to use 3/4 thick for the 4'' ? An ogee profile ?

    The mitered corners are awesome looking.

    Thanks for the compliments guys. :) The upper and lower niches are actually separated into two different zones, which can be independently controlled/or color synced. Single color is just for testing while installing. I'll finish the rest of the bathroom lighting before the controllers are finished/online.

    The wife does looks just a bit hotter in the LED lighting. I don't think the shower trim agrees though. Who's the pervert that designed these handles? Or maybe its just what I'm seeing? LOL

    Flowed water, full blast, for over 2 hours straight yesterday, just cause. With permanent heads, drain behaviour is more normal. I'll slap the door up this weekend, and its good to go! I'm actually looking forward to building the next one(daughters bathroom)! That'll be a super contemporary Eurowhipple, except crookeder. LOL
