I not too long ago constructed a Stickley-style desk round a stunning Motawi tile. In case the tile ever wanted alternative, I didn’t wish to cement it in. I additionally didn’t need it to fall out if the desk was inverted for carrying. My resolution is straightforward however efficient. I created two clips by attaching 12-gauge copper wire to the tile with a small puddle of epoxy and fitted the ends of the wire right into a groove. The wires may be bent with pliers to launch the tile.
