Just before they needed them, I suppose.

Thinking about doing a tub/shower surround with 1/4" Gibralter. Any tips on which adhesive to use, to stick it to the substrate? Is green board OK, or would I be better off using cementitious?

Greenboard is more than adequate, use silicone to attach the panels to the substrate

I really have not had the opportunity to do a shower with solid surface yet. I would think if you seamed everything correctly and loaded up on silicone the green board would be more than enough,
There is a company here in Ohio that specializes just in solid surface surrounds/shower bases. I'm friends with their sales rep so I normally shoot him referrals for shower work

I have an account at a Wilsonart distributor and figured it would be easier/faster than installing tile. My table saw fence locks out to 52" from the blade and my outfeed on both sides goes out 40" from the back edge of the cast iron top, so cutting it won't be a problem.

5/0/2013 Update: Counter tops are in and look awesome.

Well all I can say is that Mgboyd has some serious skills!!! The man came thru with some awesome looking countertops that bring things all together. Can't say enough how great of a job he did and thanks.

Next up, concrete in the garage and start building out the closet stuff.

I've never worked with 1/4" Solid surface material. How does it hold up?
