Grizzman: I underestimated just how many holes have to be drilled and cleaned up. It also made me realize I need a drill press table of some sort to hold the pieces in place. Its like any technique, I suppose. You have to do it a few times before you understand what you need to do to get better.

Very nice. Did you do any of the granite work? I picked up a piece of granite being tossed out from a construction site about 2’x3’ but has rough edges. I think it was a sink cutout.

Cueball – No, I did not do the granite work. Had it done at a local countertop shop. I have enough challenges with wood, don’t want to start messing with stone.
