Thanks Guys:

Again the whole purpose of me spending so much time doing theses videos was to hopefully inspire some people who have never done any wood working to give it a go....and those that have done some to stretch into something they maybe haven't tried....You don't need a fancy shop..all this could be done on a set of saw horses under a tarp somewhere.

Hopefully using the clock in the videos and showing how little time it really did take will also help convince some to try it. ..I haven't gone back and tallied the time all up but Im guessing around 10 hours total including install....at 90.00 per hour yard rates + 30 to 100 % mark up on materials that's easily a 1000.00 savings with the added reward and satisfaction of knowing you did it yourself....My wife has already lavished me with praise and kisses...I would not have gotten that for writing a check for it..

Let me repeat here that the only power tool you really need for this project if you purchase dimensioned lumber is a table saw.... and a cheap one at that with a good blade in it... every single other process can be done by hand ....that and a few good clamps will give you the same results I did....

Thanks to those whom took the time to post a remark or questions and comments...that means a lot to me, and keeps me going...I always have fun sharing what little I know about something and picking up other tips and tricks along the way....and always hope it truly helps someone else.

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.

Scott...does this mean she is back in the water ? I've not seen anything showing a launch. Did I miss something ?

The router with the formica bit (?) was brilliant! It's those kinds of little secrets that make a ton of difference.

As for cost - what would be the rough cost of the lumber (since I don't have a bunch of freakin' trees in my garage)?

Stillraining,

As a tile and marble contractor for over 30 years, I love to watch the other experts do their work. We make it look easy, but it takes years to get the moves down. Anyone can do what we do if they take their time, and are patient in getting it right. Your video was well done and to the point, and naturally having the right tools makes the difference.

Very good work!

You make a very good point. I can do a lot of things. The problem is that I can't do them nearly as well, or as efficiently as someone with the skills developed over time. Example, when I decide to tile my bathroom, I could do it myself and the job would turn out 'ok'. OTOH, I'd rather hire a professional to do it as it will be done well and not takes months to get done.

It really is a pleasure watching someone work who is good at their craft. As Jiffy says, they make it look so easy.

That's why you hire me to do your tile work, and I hire you to do my eye glasses so I can see what I'm doing.
