    I am currently about most of the way thru this project. It took a little time to figure out exactly what goes where since the plans are not very detailed. I am not at the tile part. excited to see the finished project.

    Can someone please help me; the plans say to use a pocket hole screw to join the front pieces together; I am just starting to use one, but can anyone explain in a little more detail how to assemble the pieces side by side? I have never done a pocket hole that spans more than 3″ wide?

    I have a question. How did you attach the backer board to the plywood? Did you use thinset or screws or both?

    Thanks in advance!

      Hi Rob, I am on this very part of the build…how did you attached the backer board?

        I haven’t built this yet, but Shanty2Chic just answered my question.

      Sorry for the delay! Screws and thinset!

      • Rob B. on July 15, 2015 at 1:46 pm

        Thanks! I’m assuming the screws should be about 3/4″ long so they don’t poke through the bottom of the plywood?

    As I work on the farmhouse table found elsewhere on your site, I look at this and think, “I can so do this next year!”. Thank you for the inspiration.
