    That was a good job on the budget, probably spent 893.53 on Bruces screws for cabinets, RJ

    Conversation with Bruce. "I don't think I like the 4" backsplash?" WHAT?!?!? Why? "I don't know I just don't think I will like it." There you go again, overthinking. "I don't like the subway tile for the rest either." So after hours of looking for new tile besides subway yesterday, getting just the right color white, after there all tons of white, going to a tile store to see hundreds of tiles and kitchens & baths, "Maybe it won't look so bad after all." Are you kidding me? Bring home the piece of countertop I have, the 6th tile sample we bought for the wall, "Gee, that really looks good." Did I mention the wall backsplash he liked was one of the first I suggested for the backsplash but he didn't like? Back to lowes returning all the sample pieces and to the kitchen store to sign the contract for the countertop and measurement tomorrow. Now you know why I'm half crazy. Just half. LOL

    AND THE GRAND TOTAL IS: $4893.53!!! That is for all materials for the kitchen, wood, screws, flooring, etc. Anything needed. Money saved by using Veterans discount and coupons was $1050!! Counter Top was $3331.03, Appliances were $3250.00 for a grand total of $11474.58!! Not bad for a totally custom made kitchen!! Final pics to follow after countertop and door installed. Now onto another project - NOT!!!

    Got my counter top. Sort of went over budget but oh well. It is called white diamond -the very first one I picked out! I splurged on a 4”backsplash for $700. Door to cellar way, backsplash, curtains and we are done!!!

    Went to pick out countertop yesterday. Going back out today as I may have changed my mine. Glad it’s only 6 miles from the house. Asked Bruce how much he was comfortable with me spending “as long as you waited, whatever you want.” May have been a mistake saying that. 🤗

    LAST CABINET UP!!! Then dropped on my shoulder. But I didn’t let the cabinet fall. Dishwasher to install and hook up, under counter lights to be installed, than counter tops. Going this week to pick them out. Then window frame, doorframe and door. Then something else I’m sure.

    I was evasedropping on a conversation between a salesman and customer at Lowe’s today about countertops. Do you know they charge $1.50-2.77 an INCH for the edging. Plus if undercounter sink an additional amount to prep the underneath, plus the sink and to install the sink plus plus plus. This guy started at $2500 but with edging, and other stuff it was over $5000. We are going tomorrow so I can see some negotiating in my future. At least my son can do the plumbing. Luckily I only need about 35 sq ft. Pocono green? Glad I grew up in the Poconos before it changed, Mt. Pocono had a population of 900. Now there’s nothing but traffic jams and too many people. So sad.

    Quartz gives you so many more color choices and very durable. We put in pocono green granite , actually looks black until the sun hits it. We have had a couple of issues of the years mainly because of settling. I managed tor repair them with a bit of died epoxy.

    Jim butcher block from an old bowling alley. I like that . My first real assignment in the Air force was Tyndall AFB, FL we had two work benches for laying out the massive blue prints for the flight simulators I worked on. They were each 1/2 of a bowling alley 3'6" by 30 feet each.

    Quartz I’m hoping. We’re going to my brother in law supplier on Saturday to check them out. Lowe’s has what I want but I’ve heard horror stories about some of their installers. I have a backsplash I want to use, the very first one I saw, so I’m taking that to see what I can match it with. And only ONE more cabinet to install, the microwave above the stove.

    I have used it on a few projects and it worked on some, not so good on others.
    What I found was the yellow on BB plywood is too light in pigment--even with two coats full strength. Had to scrap some pieces and pick another color. The red, blue, green, orange did great. I should say the dyes mix...

    Reply to Question on a RBI hawk
    by Rolf
    Along with what Tango said. The earlier saws did not top feed,not exactly sure when the change happened. I personally would not buy a Hawk that has the lower barrel style clamp. I would look for a saw 2005 or newer. That has the new clamps Variable speed, top and bottom feed.
    If you can get...

    Thanks for the info, Rolf. Sounds like the Corian was the culprit. Interesting.

    I have a Wacom tablet for several years, I too find it frustrating to use. I have never been able to get comfortable with the eye hand coordination that a tablet requires. I find the mouse far more convenient. I know that there those swear by it, I swear at it.

    I have tried really hard with Inkscape and Paint. Dabbled in a few others. Mostly I find it to be a glorified mouse that I have to be overly carefuly to keep my hand off of the surface while using. True graphite and paper artists don't allow their hand to brush the paper because the graphite would...
