The clinic I attended today consisted of a talented guy named Zac in aisle No. 7 with a table and some supplies. I expected a production — Lights! Microphone! Chairs! But, no.
Still, it was perfect. With four of us standing around, we got to ask all the questions we wanted. Is that Hardibacker board? (Yes.) How much is it? (About $11 for a 3-by-5-foot piece.) How long does it take the thinset to dry? (About 20 or 30 minutes.) How much is it? (About $10 a quart.) And so on.
The reason I mention all this is that each month Home Depot offers in-store clinics on different topics, and this month includes setting tile. Other topics for April are: selecting and planting perennials, water conservation at home and creating an organic garden.
Any other free clinics you would recommend to others?
