When I said ’...just be done with it’ I was kidding. It’s just how I say things I suppose. I always try to produce quality and am always my worst critic.

I will talk with my friend about the grooves. Having them end the way they do and having nowhere for stuff to go once in them struck me as odd as well. I’m glad to hear that I’m not the only one…

About using screws and plugs for the fiddles – is that considered to be the best way to secure them and maintain good looks? I assume you’d use stanless steel, right?

For the stiffeners underneath, would you put one every 8-12” or farther apart? Also, with these, you drill a slightly oversized hole in the stiffener for the screw, right?
