Well here’s the new project. My wife had been after me (5 years) to build a cabinet with cutting board to match our cherry cabinets in the kitchen. I ran out of excuses so off to the store I went. I purchase most of my hardwood from a local saw mill at 25% of the big box store cost. Unfortunately he was out of s2s cherry so this left me at the mercy of another hardwood distributor. Man is cherry expensive when you have to pay shelf price. I don’t deal much in cherry so this was a real shock. I can build the cabinet from mahogany cheaper. Oh well in the end it is all about the pleasure and use you get from the piece you build. My wife is happy, I’m happy it is done and now it is on to the next project. Thanks and many blessings to those who sent suggestions on finishing the top….

-- In the end it is more about the memories we make than the pieces we build.
