Well, now I know why people pay extra to get the pre-cut wood kits. Maybe I layout and measure slow, but it took me several hours to work through it all, not counting a couple of the parts that require a mirror image of another part. I don't know why but those frame layouts were the worst. By the time I did the last one on sheet 4, it went smoothly with only one eraser destroyed in the process. There were plenty distractions because I did most of it on the kitchen island because of its width!! The wife was THRILLED,but she drew her own lines and did not allow me to perform any cutting there.Her saintliness (is that a word) only goes so far I guess.
