A variety of tiles
5/8" piece of plywood for tabletop
Plant stand for base
Flat board, bricks, phone book etc...(something heavy for weight)
2. Set spacers between the tiles to hold them in place. Use the size of spacer you want your grout line to be.
3. Working from the center out, remove tiles one at a time, spread tile adhesive on the backs, and then stick them on the board. We used a tile adhesive found at Home Depot. These tiles were not all the same heights, so it was more difficult to grout this tabletop because we did not build up a level bed beneath them first. Recommendation: if you are using different height tiles, take this extra step. Replace the spacers and let the adhesive set for 30 minutes, then remove them.
4. Position a flat board on top of the tiles, and weight it down. A couple of bricks or phone books will do. Wait 24 hours for the adhesive to dry before removing the weights.
5. Glue the tabletop to the base and let set so you can glue the edge tile on before grouting.
6. As soon as all the adhesive is dry you are ready to grout the tiles. We used a Polyblend non-sanded grout left over from another project. Mix it per the instructions on the package. Spread a thick coat of grout over the surface using a grout float working it into the gaps.
