Here is a shot of the cuts in progress. Notice the lousy cut on the left - real wavy and jagged. We had to stop and secure the rim because it moved all over on the bed. We blocked and weighted it, but not enough. Lesson learned - make it seriously secure. After the improved work holding, all was well.
I had to pull out my old school hand tools and file away the mistakes in that one slot - no matter how far we progress with technology, a file still comes in handy.
Other old school tools to keep around - a phone that makes phone calls on a thing called a phone line, big hammers, a toaster, and a pocket knife - these will be crucial during the Zombie Apocalypse.
