...a pile of oil soaked rags
Apparently one approach to "fix" poor workmanship is to BURN THE HOUSE DOWN.

The kitchen cabinets are delayed for who knows how long, but the dining/stair and bathroom cabinets are going ahead.

Sills & Such
|Worried a good bit about this corner prior to attempting it.|
The interior sills are extra deep to cover the thick walls insulating the concrete foundation, and to provide a place for plants, objects, etc..

Going to be rather messy around here for a while.

Table Saw Down
|Maybe I did work it harder than usual|
My saw fritzed out on me last evening, mid cut.

Did not have a new table saw in the budget for the house.
Lets hope we can get this repaired, and quick! Really need it.
Saw is back! Thanks to Charles H. Day Co. for a very quick and reasonable repair.
