So here is what I started with and day one of demo. I'm looking a putting in a round shower with a pan. My question is around tile. I've always used a circular saw when cutting tile and never seen a band saw? How would I do the tile around the round part of the shower? I figured id start on Ww before going to the bob Vella forum.

Use a 4" or 4-1/2" angle grinder and a diamond wheel... Take your time.

4.5" Die grinder with a good blade, easy peasy.

If this is the shower you plan to install that is a shower base so cutting tile in a circular/round edge would only need to be done for around your pipes protruding from the wall. Correct me if I am not understanding but in any case most people use a 4" grinder with a diamond blade or you can mark your holes and use a hole saw also found at depot if near a joint you can use the tile saw and cut fingers multiple lines at the depth of the circle and knock them out or use the saw to smooth the curved edge carefully. Also they may sell nibblers which are a type of plier that is horizontal and can cut through the tile these are not always that great.

I hope that helps

That Home Depot picture makes it look like the floor tile would go under the outside rim of the shower. If so then you wouldn't need a clean curved cut.

why wouldn't you want to put the shower base on top of the tile floor

^^^ yep. Pan goes on top of the floor. Might also want to consider placing the pan on a mortar bed when you set it to fill in the voids. That way, you don't risk stepping through your unsupported fiberglass pan after a few years of wear and tear. $10 in mortar now can save hundreds in the future if that pan were to crack.
