Red face Cutting Travertine tiles

Can I cut travertine tile with the same blade I use to cut ceramic tile? The blade is fairly new, only used to cut about 700 square feet of ceramic so far.

Yes you can - cuts easier than tile in my opinion. Just watch that you put even pressure on the travertine when you reach the end of the cut or you risk chipping the end.

Handy tool for small cuts and cleaning up a cut is a Dremel with an EZ Lock and diamond wheel. Travertine is a lot "softer" than tile so you need to use a little more care working with it.
