Best thing to do is make a pattern. They use'em all the time in the home repair
business. Get some plumbers putty and roll out some long thin pieces. You
remember playdough when you was a kid?
Then lay it out adjacent to the notch, the way you want the tile cut. Then
pour some quick set epoxy in the dammed area. WaLA! PrestO ChangeO. After it
sets you have a perfect pattern. Just lay it over a full tile and make your
cuts. What would you home improvement wannabes do without me?
This is easier to show than to explain.
Place the tile to be cut on top of the last full tile closest to your
obstacle. Take another new tile and place it on top of the to-be-cut tile
and push it against the wall, jamb, or obstacle. Draw a line onto the
to-be-cut-tile on the opposite side. If the tile needs to be cut 2
directions, you may have to move it onto another full tile you already did
lay to mark the other direction. After you have done one or two, you will
get the gist of it. You will need to make allowances for grout and the
spacing lugs on the tile, if you have them.
Keep the whole world singing. . . .
