    good for you finding a new way to use our tools. just don't let hubbies see this because they might get some bad ideas. hehe
    when life gets you down go and talk with a little kid. They will help you work out even the worst problems with their simple logic.

    Great idea. I wish I could do that with the laminate we are in the process of putting down now! That is, before I cut my hands off with the power saw. Power tools and me--great combination.

    I used a utility knife. No way would a rotary cutter have scored that tile. The mat & ruler were what I used. I was so happy w/how much easier it was ta measure & cut.
