So, you need 3/4 of an inch? Maybe time to bust out the skill saw (or circular saw depending on your use of local terms and vernacular) and shave about 3/8" off of each side. To make the line...

I was thinking more along the lines of using it to take the cup out of a flat sawn board. And maybe you need a better miter saw... perhaps a nice 12" sliding miter saw. I've never had trouble with...

It looks good, Kwak. There are other ways to have done the drain, but it looks good. At least the builders didn't make the drains too high.

I don't mix mortar enough to go by the peanut butter rule. If I'm not mixing a whole bag, I get the kitchen scale out and mix about 10 or 20 pounds at a time.

Looks good. Remember to mix the thinset or grout every few minutes to keep it from setting up too early. Just keep moving and have a couple ice cold beers waiting.

1966.

We didn't have to cut into the foundation. It was actually about 4.5 inches below the bottom of the door. Perfect for a 4 inch slab and a threshold plate.
