this the job with the strange dark stains on tiles.
Ats advised correctlty that this is romanian limestone.
Have worked out now that it could be the diesel heaters on site. still to find a cleaner that works .
making a feature around a circular table with a steel decorative grate set within a frame underneath.
here are a few pics of work in progress.
a very old compass brought in by an old friend and employee of mine made the setting out much simpler.
a bit of batten and masonary nail to scribe a groove in loose laid stone to set outer radius.
made a template for inside radius and cut oversized.
loose laid the ring to hold steel grate and then marked around perimeter.
ring and grate not total perfect circle so better to do this way.a simple design but nice feature to circular table and grate that client had been keeping in garage for tweny years waiting for a new kitchen !!
