« Part 1: Roughing out Part 2 of Bathroom Vanity Mirror series Part 3: Cutting the Mortise »

I finished planing all the pieces for my bathroom vanity tonight. I am anxious to get started on the mortise and tennon work. I ordered a set of mortise chisels last week and expected them by now. I checked the tracking number and the post office claims they delivered them on Monday. I double checked my mailbox and no luck. I’m kind of hung up on the project until they show so I hope they come in soon. I guess I’ll have to call the post office tomorrow and see what is going on.

Bummer.. which set of chisels did you order and who makes them?

I ordered Narex chisels because I cannot afford the ones I want and I have heard these are actually pretty good. We’ll see, maybe, eventually :(.

Even more frustration. I called the post office today and they said they would look into in a couple of days. I couldn’t help but notice that like most branches of the government they just don’t give a s**t! I shot an email to the site I ordered them from and they said they would look into it as well.
