we bought a house and took the first few steps into it, but when we moved in we were pretty surprised to find the entire second floor was glass. We hadn’t even considered it before. We had been so intent on finishing up the kitchen, living room, and master bath, and getting the bedrooms all done, that we hadn’t even thought about the glass. We wanted everything to be done and be perfect, and that included the glass tiles.
The second floor of the house was not all glass, however. This is because the previous owners had installed glass tiles that had a couple of small cracks in them. Our job is to fix these cracks. That means we need to get the entire floor wet down. It also means we need to take the entire floor and put it in a glass tile. Not only that, but we have to get someone to install these tiles in the remaining two stories of the house.
Our job is to fix tiny cracks in the floor and to install glass tiles. You may be thinking, ‘I see that this is the same guy who said you could take a picture of this, so it must be true.’ Yes, he did. And it is. You should really see the new project gallery now so you know what it looks like. We had a ton of fun doing this.
We got a whole lot of help from our good friends at the home depot. We got to use a glass tile cutter and a plasma cutter to cut the two big round holes that the glass tiles come in. The plasma cutter was our most difficult part. We actually got to make our own plasma cutter, which we couldn’t find anywhere near as good as the one they sell. We had to get all sorts of adapters and we had to do the plasma cutting by hand.
The Plasma Cutter is the tool of choice for those of us who think about the art of cutting glass. The plasma cutter is a tool that cuts glass in one pass, and then there’s a couple of passes to make sure you get a nice clean cut. The plasma cutter was actually the easiest part of this project. What makes the plasma cutter so amazing is that it’s made of aluminum and it’s dishwasher safe.
The plasma cutter does take a bit of practice to get the hang of, but it’s also very simple to use. We went through a whole set of instructions and our first attempt to use the plasma cutter was a complete failure. We tried everything and nothing worked. I figured why not just give it a try. We had to use a plasma cutter on the same tile twice before we got it to cut it cleanly.
In my opinion the plasma cutter is one of the most beautiful tools I’ve used in my career. It’s made of a sturdy material that looks like it’s been through a lot of years of use, and it’s very elegant. It’s incredibly durable and can handle the most powerful lasers. We’re not sure if it’ll work on glass, but that would be a great project.
I love the idea of home depot doing glass mosaic tiles. I’m just not sure it will happen. There are several issues with the current process. First, they are extremely expensive. In this case they are $6-$8 a pop. Second, the process involves laying down a thin layer of glass on top of a thin layer of stone. That may work with glass, but I don’t think it will work with stone.
The glass mosaic tiles are another example of how much of the past decade we have turned our hobby into a business. I could have written that sentence myself, or at least used it in this article. Home Depot started making glass mosaics in the early 90s, and it has remained one of the largest glass tile manufacturers in the world. The company had to turn to new processes in order to keep up with demand, and the latest process is called “Dry Plate Laser Glass.
The glass mosaic tiles are available in two different types at this point. All ceramic tiles are made using the Dry Plate Laser Glass process, but glass mosaic tiles generally only use the dry plate process. The Dry Plate laser glass process is much more expensive than the dry plate laser process, which explains why it is only available to manufacturers with big operations.
