Man am I tired. Just completed a large order today. About 10 hours invested. 1 10’ picnic table, 1 6’ picnic table, 4 benches, 2 arm chairs, 2 chairs, and 2 side tables. Why does my best seller have to be the heaviest! Glad to see these still doing well in December!

You certainly out produced me today. I didn’t make any progress on my projects, let alone complete anything!

You finished just in time for the family holiday get together!!! Nicely done.

Be thankful you have a best seller. Looks like a good job. I always hope my big stuff sells well. It usually is my highest profit margin as well.

Yeah, I’m very thankful these sell the way they do. The margin isn’t good on the benches and chairs just so I can attract more volume. The picnic tables have a great margin and I still sell them for about 2/3 what you would pay locally. I have no clue how someone could pay the asking price for picnic tables at some of the local stores.

It’s a great feeling that something you build is popular. :)
