Great write up Tom.. should prove to be a valuable resource for many of our new readers and maybe a few of the old dogs can learn a new trick or two..

Lots of good information Tom. I whole heartedly agree that gathering as much information as possible leads to easier projects with better results. There is no substitute for practice on a project. I build a prototype from pine before working with more expensive wood. This shows you any unexpected problems with the design or methods you use. Better to screw up on inexpensive materials!

But Mike, I like pine!

Good job, Tom.

I saw a pic today of my mini split in the garage. This is year three. I love it.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!
