Tile cutter too small?

If, like us, you bought large tiles (we bought 60 x 60cm), your standard-sized tile cutter will certainly be too small. Ooops! Buying another one would be very expensive…

So, just make a jig. In the picture below, we used some lengths of wood we had left over. We made sure that the pieces of wood on either side were parallel to each other (and of the same height). We made a sturdy structure to make it a safe working environment. At the back of the tile cutter, we placed a piece of wood across fixed to the bottom boards using a couple of screws  to prevent it from sliding when cutting the tile. The hardest thing was to cut in a straight line but we just followed the pencil line we marked on the tile.
