After a bit of a vacation from this project, I decided to finally get to the tiling (something else I’ve never done before)! I went to Home Depot and bought 1/4″ HardieBacker board, cut it, and screwed it to the top which was just the thick plywood.
A shout-out to Alex Lopez for lending me his angle grinder and wet saw… you saved me time and money! ¡Muchas gracias amigo!
