It took longer than I had hoped. It always does. I don't have an abundance of work right now and the HO is still working on putting the bathroom together so there was no rush. So that is how I took it. I worked on it for about 3 weeks but screwing around on the Internet quite a bit and taking short trips to see my other buddies workshops and shoot the ****. If I put a real push on it I could have gotten it done in 2 weeks. I have been working shorter hours and no Saturdays because this is not a rush. Been nice working 8-9 hour days instead of 10-11 and also Saturdays.
He wanted QS White Oak, and then I ordered it. Then he goes and tells me that he didn't want any of the rays a flecks in there. He showed me on a table that he had what he liked and didn't like. So I had to sort through all the QS White Oak and pull all the non figured stuff out. about 30% of it was like this. So I took my 200 Bd Ft and my choices were reduced to 60 Bd Ft of stock to pick from. That slowed things down a bit. If I had known and ordered Rift Oak instead I could have just plowed along without any worries. But, this is the usual stuff you get from HO that don't know any better.
Measure Twice Cut Once -- It's a lot easier to cut more off then it is to cut MORON.
