Yeah, Ron, doing much better! Got the stitches out from the hernia surgery last Friday, and the surgeon told me I was good to go. Thanks for asking!

Ron, I'm building a big entertainment center, then a bench, then a solid cherry bench with storage, all for customers. I've been busy lately and loving every minute!

Hi Larry,
I have found that doing custom work for customers is very different than building something you hope to sell sometime.

If you build a bench and then put it up for sale, it is what it is.
If you build a bench for a customer, it needs to meet their expectations or they won't be happy.

Figuring out a fair price is always an issue.
Custom work comes with a premium.

My stuff is expensive but I have found that the folks that buy expensive stuff don't care what it costs.
That's a good thing!

Good luck with your builds and take a lot of pictures and show us.
Zulu
