My $.02 ...

I say to use 1/2" cement backerboard over 3/4" exterior grade plywood. Then, about every 6 months or so, you'll need to seal the grout. It isn't waterproof.

Yes, particle board is out. There a lot of step-by-step 'instructions' all over the WEB on how to tile countertops. If you can't find them, find a book on Kitchen & Baths; not Floors (as you've already found out, this book isn't helping you much.) Be sure to do your homework before you make your first cut.

My best to ya and hope this helps.
