I used a 1.25" carbide hole saw, and the first one Made it about a third of the way through before it was warn out. The next one I slowed down my drill press and it seemed to work better, but it still took a toll on the new bit. It did seem to work better to cool the bit with water than oil. But over all it looks awesome, and went together pretty easy, considering it was my first time doing any kind of tile work.
