It feels like real progress in the shop when the cuts get made. Kind of like getting your plane ticket booked feels like the start of a trip like this one that would take us to Montreal, Canada.
The various forms that will be used in a work start to come into focus and things get tangible. Now it's possible to see how things are going to come together.
A great deal of work still exists - fine sanding, construction, staining, finishing, assembling, adjusting, shipping, installation - but real progress can be seen and felt.
On a project this size, you build a little over. In this case, we crafted a couple of extra legs just in case something didn't work out as planned. Sometimes we need them, usually we don't, but on a tight deadline like this, there was no time for a redo.
We're on our way!
