    possible new project

    late last week, after i had the web site up and running, one of my former co-workers emailed me wanting to know how much it would cost to have me build a version of my entertainment center, only a foot taller. in order to do that, i had to rebuild the entertainment center in sketchup (to the rescue again!), then get the cutlist, and figure out the costs from there. this is how it looks in sketchup, doors closed and open, along with the basic dimensions.

    Congrats Dan. Now when you get the project and down payment. Have the client sign the drawing.

    Sorry to hear this. Sometimes wives just get in the way.

    Dan,
    I have a thought. I know that seems kinda strange. Contact your friends wife and tell her how sorry your are that they aren't going to go ahead project. Tell her how much her husband wanted the Entertainment center and remind her that Christmas is comming.Offer the build the thing secretly as a present fromher to her husband.. Hey you got nothing to loose..
