    A search throws up a lot of threads about cutting mitre joints but I'm hoping for a couple of tips on specific technique. I'm planning to tile around two external corners (kitchen window) with these brick-effect tiles (http://www.tilemountain.co.uk/muralla-beige-brick-wall-tile.html).

    My tile saw can cut mitres with an adjustable table, but I'm hoping you might have some specific tips on getting the best finish. I also have a bench grinder and am wondering whether it's better to perform a straight cut on the tile and then grind the mitre into the biscuit afterwards?

    Any advice would be hugely appreciated (even if it's "don't waste your time and get some tile trim!).

    Cheers,

    Dave

    I'd go with your last statement.. The tiles will chip on the edges with a wet cut.

    Have mitred once but with ceramic tiles on a wet cutter - it does look better.

    Try one and see how it goes.

    Only issue is that the corners have to be true (vertical in both planes)
