Duh…I am sure you have heard the old saying “Measure twice cut once” as you can see I came up short on the right side. Amazing, I have been designing and building stuff all my life and I still can’t operate a simple tape measure, shaking my head.

Take two! As my Mom would say “All is well that ends well”. The little glitch at the top is a knot put there by the Creator, under shop rules those are not defects but enhancements to be appreciated. The rest are some random signs made over the weekend.

Don’t feel bad. It happens to me all the time.

I was working on something today that needed four identical pieces. When will I learn to make an extra one because I always screw at least one of them up!

That usually comes from using to different tape measures on the same job , one that is fine and the other one had a couple of inches chopped off.
Don’t ask how I know. :)

Have your say...
