    Lucky Choice

    I was to build a Bookcase for a customer. Both her and her husband were in agreement on the size. 7ft. long and 8ft. high and 12" deep. I made an extra call to varify the depth of this case since I saw a electonic piece of equiptment close by. But she said,no keep it at 12" deep. I picked up the material and started as always with the face frame. I normaly do the bottom section of the cabinet first,then do the top. But this time I decided to build just the face frames for both top and bottom. Last night I got an E-mail asking if I could make the bottom section deeper to hold her sterio equipment?
    At this point It will be no problem. Had I went my normal way ugg.
    If you make a mistake it was part of the original plan!

    It's nice when things work out. I usally have a waiting list so by the time I get to the custom stuff people usally have call and made a change or two. i hate making people waite but sometimes it is for the better.

    I don't do much custom stuff, but when I do, I make them wait on purpose. I don't tel them that, but there is always time for changes allowed.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.
