Randy, next time you need a toilet pipe-sized hole, you might try what I did when I changed the coach out to a direct-dump. Tried the hole saw route but gave up pretty quickly on that. After drilling a few little holes around the perimeter, I used a Rota-Zip saw with a tile/masonry blade. Being only 3" or less diameter, I was able to tilt the blade such to enable thin cuts to still maintain a round hole. Cut like butter through it. After getting through the tile the sawzall worked OK for the steel layers.

Mark and Donna have gone north for the summer,Mark has been a huge help,bit now i'm all alone!
Well,Mollys helping!
Carols down at her sisters for a few days,so yesterday Molly and i worked on the shower,thats slow going,you have to glue one part in,and wait until the glue is dry,so we were off on a different project while the glue dried.
We spent a few hours cleaning the shop,and blowing the sawdust out with a leaf blower.
Theres been no drawn plans for this build,its all in my head and we just wing it,like everything i do.
Theres nobody here to take pics,but i did get the heart pine countertop for the buffet built today,and i have one coat of poly on it,the top is 4 boards screwed and glued side x side,then sanded with a DA with 80 grit,then sanded with 400 grit.
Its smooth as as babys butt!
One coat of poly and then sand with 400 again to get any standing hairs,then poly,then sand,and again..
THis wood is 200 years old or so,i salvaged it out of a 100 plus YO building,and the trees were 100 yo when they were harvested,Yellow heart pine is beautiful wood.
