ceramic tile question

hey guys,
im thinking of doing a bathroom floor with ceramic tile of which i have no experience doing. originally i was going to use some self stick tiles or linoleum but i had a change of heart. im not sure if its possible to do this now as i already put the new subfloor down 3/4" .to meet the hieght requirement to the flange. can u put tile over wood?..keep in mind this floor is solid!...underneath i have numerous furring strips and its glued and screwed ( i overkill on a lot of things)...its not perfectly level as it is an old house but it is flat. .do i have to waterproof the wood first somehow? thx for any replies

there are thinsets available for the application over plywood but it needs to an exterior ply and properly spaced and screwed accordingly.You can get these at lowes or h.d. read the bag first and make sure it says it's good for wood

It also needs to be two layers of ply, not one single layer, and the top layer should be exterior rated fir plywood, bc or better grade, 3/4" thick.
