In my mind rough sawn logs does not qualify as a “Kit”.
The amount of work sweat and tears you put into this baby will be in your memory for years to come and you will treasure it like it is part of “you”.

A thing of beauty. How do you think you’ll feel when your chisel slips and you put a big ol’ gouge in that baby? I’d cry my eyes out, that’s what I’d do.

You’ve done it now! You are going to have to make extra special projects that are at least as nice as your bench… That’s going to be a tough task to accomplish. I’ve got 3 ash logs waiting to be sawn into lumber.
