Make the Cuts
To make each cut, make sure your hands are out of the way before slowly sliding the platform with the tile through the blade (Image 1).
The water-cooled saw works great for straight or angle cuts but it's essential for compound cuts. In our project, we cut a piece to go around the shower drain, making three cuts on the piece. These cuts would be nearly impossible with hand tools.
Remove any excess material left in the corners with hand nippers (Image 2).
Once most of the cuts are made, determine how the cut pieces will fit together.
The next tricky part is making cuts on a piece to accommodate the toilet drain. In our project, we made two vertical cuts but we also need to cut a piece out of the middle. Use the scoring tool to make this cut, then set it on some wood or other hard surface to snap off the cut
