Besides using a ceramic tile mastic or BoatLife's LifeSeal caulking compound, has anyone used another product to attach ceramic tile to a varnished wood surface?

When I installed the tile around my heater, I did not use ceramic
tile, but a kind of marble. I forget the name, but it is marble
chunks and chips in a polyester resin. I did not realize what it was
until I was nearly ready to install it. It is not completely
fireproof, but I could not ignite it with a propane torch. I wanted
to be able to remove it reasonably easily if it charred so I used
“Liquid Nails” to stick it to the varnished wood, the formica shelf
and the fiberglass bulkhead. There are a variety of formulations, I
do not remember which I used. It has not had any problems with
loosening for 3 years now. By the way, these tiles look like regular
marble to casual inspection (fooled me) and are easily cut with an
abrasive blade in a circular saw. When I did my ceramic tile kitchen
floor, I rented a wet saw, I think $30 for the day.
