Brilliant, indeed, thinking ahead as you did. Well done! (I'm betting you figured out how to move the stove by yourself. I would never bet against your being able to do something.)

P.S. The tile looks great!
P.P.S. Did you get to use any of your glass-working tools on the tile?

I didn't use any of the tools for this. They are still buried in boxes and such that I have stacked along another wall. I have uncovered the suitcase though since I had to get to the breaker panel (where bulk storage is. Hmm, I may need to snip some tiles for later - I'll have to keep that out since I'll have to move that suitcase when I install steel furring for sheet rock.

Thanks for reminding me about that - I knew what the suitcase held when I uncovered it, I just never thought it most likely has tile snips in it.

As I recall, you have at least one "glass cutter" to use in scoring the surface of glass (I don't know if it works on tile) and at least one pair of "running pliers" to use in actually breaking the glass on score lines (again, tile?) I don't know if the tools are sturdy enough to deal with the tile you are working with. Chisel, hammer, and 2x4 may be more useful to you.

Good luck!

I was mistaken, the glass cutting implements were in a tool box in my work shop. You are correct, they are not sturdy enough to work with tile. But before I remembered where they really were, I got motivated and emptied the suitcases and all the patterns/books/molds are now ensconced in the craft room. Yay, moore stuff out of the basement!

Better yours than mine. *laughing*

I recall that the tools were in a tiny toolbox; but, I don't recall whether the toolbox was rusty maroon colored or putty colored. Either way, it would have come from your grandparents. Rusty maroon box was used for their important papers, as I recall. The putty colored box was an old toolbox that dad had repainted and given me (with basic hand tools in it) when I started college - so I wouldn't be completely helpless in my college apartment.

Good memory - it was the small maroon tool box. Have the tan one too.
