  • Hi AJ,
    Making a large scale piece of furniture sounds really cool. I’m not sure if you have answered this in another post but do you have any challenges you have faced in your progress so far?

  • Wow looks like you have made a lot of progress and cut a lot of wood out. Glad to see you are on track to completing the project on time, good luck on everything else! How long do you think the rest of the project is going to take?
