Cutting Slate for Shower Floor?
Planning on using 6x12 slate for a portion of our shower walls. Unfortunately, the pieces we have are 15.5x15.5 so there will be quite a bit of waste after cutting to desired size. Wondering if the slate could be further cut to make 2" x 2" tiles that could be used on the shower floor. Just hate to buy more product if I could reuse my own cut pieces of slate.
First, is slate okay to use on a shower floor? Was originally leaning towards porcelain for durability, but it would be nice to reuse the slate and it would match the walls.
Second, will it be difficult to cut the slate into 2x2 tiles?
I don't own a wet saw otherwise I would try a few cuts on my own.
