Tony it’s funny but I’m my own worst enemy while building these last two projects and others truth be told.
The Gatto plans are very wordy, half the page is pictures and the other half instruction but I can’t seem to go by the plans [read] and end up making trouble for myself by jumping ahead and build out of sink to the plans and down the road something don’t work and I have to plan around my miss steps but all is well and it all comes out in the end.
