    Fusing, probably.

    You'll need a kiln, a saw, and a willingness to do boring things.

    might be fun if you are planning to create a few special accent tiles and the buy the rest of the field tiles, otherwise probably a lot of boring repetitive work. I believe there are fuse molds for basic tiles, but you might have to create your own if you need a tile size not readily available as a mold.

    The hot part is done in the kiln. You will also need glass cutting equipment and a grinder.

    Check out my YouTube Channel for videos of torches running on concentrators. I'm working on more, so stay tuned and keep checking.
