Hi All,

I have a small 80cm x80cm homemade table (indoor) with a plywood top which I want to tile with some small ceramic tiles 15cmx20cm.

This is the first time I've attempted tiling, so need some advice on the best adhesive and grout to use?

I was planning on getting some readymix stuff, rather than powder, mainly because I don't have a mixing paddle or a big enough drill to attach one to, and thought I may struggle to try and mix it by hand, but im not sure now if readymix would be suitable for this job...

Any Advice for a tiling newbie?

Thanks!

Ply is a pig to tile as it expands/ contracts a lot.

This http://lilleytileandstone.co.uk/mapei/k ... tAodJ0MAcQ

is one solution, (other retailers are available, I picked that one at random)
