Finally finished the latest project — a new kitchen counter. What satisfaction! Given that it’s winter time and I can’t work outside and must remain super neat at all times (since my shop is so small), this was an exercise in discipline: no room or time to rush anything. But boy, did it pay off! Very few missteps, nothing that needed to be repeated, and at the end of the day, everything fit!

Just goes to show: more haste, less speed — or as in this case, less speed, quicker (and better) results.
