Tip O' The Day

Good Use for Bathroom Tiles




Submitted By:



Next time you go to your local building supply store, keep an eye out for clearance boxes of 4 or 6 inch bathroom tiles. Because the colour is a little different from batch to batch, they will often have remainders (half boxes or loose stacks) at very good prices. At pennies each, they make great mixing palets for small amounts of paint or epoxy. You could use them to solder on or cut photo-etch items. If the tiles are smooth, you could glue sand paper on it and velcro it to your work bench for sanding flat mating surfaces. As an added bonus, I understand that they even look good glued to the bathroom wall !!!
