    Thumbs up BBQ Island tile top

    I just finised a job for a customer that didn't want to use a solid surface top on their outdoor kitchen (BBQ island). It became a real dilemma. No one wanted to touch the job except for moi.
    What I did was use 2 layers of 3/4" pressure treated plywood screwed together and glued together with PL Premium.
    I first installed PT 2x4 framing inside the island flush to the top in order to support the ply top and have a surface to screw it down into.
    I also had 3/4" thick streel L brackets made for where it hung over the rounded side as my support.

    I then troweled on a good quality thinset to the top of the ACQ ply and screwed down 1/2" Wonderboard..
    Over the Wonderboard I painted on two coats of RedGard waterproofing and crack resisting membrane.
    Over that I installed my tile.
    The heavy edge tiles I used Speedset thinset which dried pretty rapidly.
    The edge tiles I had supported on 2x4's clamped under the counter till it dried which took about 30min +-
