Hi. Working on a project for the nearest and dearest. I have turned a cheese board but she wants a tiled mosaic inlayed in the centre section. The question is how best to adhere the tiles to the wood? Any ideas and tips from those who have been before me?

Thanks

I have successfully used silastic for teapot stands, using a single 150mm square or round tile. The grout used for a mosaic pattern could be a problem. There is a rubber based grout available at tile shops that could be ok.

Thanks guys. On arranging the mosaic I decided it looked nasty and have gone for an all wood finish, but will remember this for next time!
