Not so much a difficult task as a teuoids one. A few more details might help.1. Is the mesh fine weave?2. Is the mest top Flush with the rim around the edge?3. Is the table round or ?4. Do you have Tiles/glass/ a pattern in mind?5. Is the substance of the mesh steel or aluminum? You can approach this in a couple of ways. You can cut a piece of concrete backer board to size; attach it to the table from underneath; with stainless fender washers and screws/ OR construction adhesive; then apply the tiles. If you used this method, it would also allow that you could possible work the pattern in your garage, or someplace out of the elements, then with someones aid, place the finished piece and attach still from underneath. OR you can cover the mesh with something that just allows that the THIN SET mortar will not seep through the mesh;;; although for it to end up a stronger bond with the table itself, it might actually help if some mortar pushed into the mesh. Depending on the pattern/ number of tiles/ placement/ you may not need a Wet saw or diag. grinder at all. That equates to what you do at the perimeter certainly. You might even consider PVC/ Vinyl lattice strip attached to the rim of the table, to border it, allowing a clean edge with the mortar. I'd probably work this job from the inside out, to the perimeter. Once the edge area has been completed, remove the Dam smooth the edge with additional thin set,,, OR perhaps devise a method for applying edging tile all the way around the perimeter. The Mortar: Any exterior grade Tile mortar will do, perhaps sold in your location in various brand names. Mixed to the consisteny of mashed potato, applied in small areas at a time, with a rectangular toothed trowel, or applicator; and tiles set in place. No offense but I can't imagine a mastik, or adhesive for this kind of tile work. Hopefully you've either laid out a pattern, or have one in mind as you work along. Interior applications for mosaic were/are, often done in plaster. This is not such a case. Once set; then you can define the spaces with an appropriate grout, in some color that coordinates, or accents the pattern.Steven Wolf ADDITION: Depending on your thoughts, the design, the type of tile, and your feelings about aesthetics, you could apply enough mortar to create the situation where it becomes the Grout the seam filler.
