It's Labor Day and I'm actually taking the day off for once. After working day and night to complete a project over the last ten days, I deserve it.
Also... I really need to finish up a woodworking build so I can have the tile guy seal it into my kitchen tile for me. I got a good start on it early this morning... only to find out that the pricey poplar boards I bought from Home Depot were absolute shit. They warped ALONG THE LENGTH, which takes real effort to accomplish. I ran to Lowes and bought poplar boards that weren't skewed to hell and... get this... cost half as much.
I don't know why I ever buy wood from Home Depot. It's never that great, even when you pay extra for the pricey stuff.
I guess I just like the convenience because it's closer.
