Today is day 12 of a 14-day family road trip, and nobody is awake yet. I promised myself I would actually unplug from the internet, which I have thus far, but a little sneak on to my laptop before everyone wakes up won’t hurt anything. Next weekend I have a fun retro-ish cooler box with plans to publish. Today is a lesson: “Things don’t always go as planned.”
This video covers the most expensive woodworking mistake I’ve made. I spent $1050 on FAS maple for butcher block tops. The tops turned out great but they didn’t make the cut when I put them in place. So now what? Time to chop up my work and turn lemons into lemonade.
