Got some time last night to get the tile set. Still need to grout, but have to wait 24 hours for the thinset to dry.

After staring at the wall for an hour trying to decide how the hell to cut the tile to fit the crazy shape we had an epiphany.
We cut the exact same wall out of the saved file on the CNC and laid it flat. BOOM easy peasy.

We used resin tile so the only way to cut it is with a band saw, which is a huge pain in the ass because they are so tiny and want to fly off everywhere if you don't do it just right. Anyway that all worked out just fine, took several hours but in the end totally worth it.

Once we had that laid out we mixed up a bucket of Laticrete 254 Platium and went to town.

It went pretty smoothly, a little running back and forth to the bandsaw to trim a few spots but ended up working well,
Probably took an hour to the do the big wall and then 45 minutes to do the rest.

And here we sit before grout.
