Travertine Backsplash #6

Here is a picture of the harlequin backsplash fully in place and taped up. It looks a little goofy now, but it turned out great.

Here is with the tape off, not yet grouted. We are very happy with the resutls...

To cut the diamond tiles correctly, you really need a holding fixture. It doesn't need to be fancy, it just needs to support the pieces well. I cut this out of a piece of scrap wood - it slides along the straight-edge on the sled.

A tradition we have : The "owner" always put our favorite piece in (the last one). Here is an action shot of my DW's hand at work.
