Sweet! Thanks, Mark!

I wasn't looking forward to messing with shims; I'd have to take the trim off both sides.

Nice. Shims are a PIA.

I'd like to make one of these paneled storage chests to replace one in the bedroom that doesn't match. I already have a lot of materials necessary to make the basic box.

Wait a tic! Don't you have a double door to hang first?

Hehe - yeah, I can get a bit scattered when stressed.

I'm looking over an old quote from the local lumber yard done in September and I'd like to order from them, but I'm not gonna pay $3K for them to rip out and replace trim that I've already carefully removed. These contractors drive me crazy with how they massage the numbers. It drives me crazy that a 1/4" difference can double the price of a pair of doors that will likely have to be shimmed or planed to fit anyway. If I just order the door and DIY the installation it will knock off 1/3 off the price.

I brought out the patio furniture and took all the winter coats upstairs for storage. I have some calls out to a tree service for prunings and possible removals but need to call a couple more. My wife has also started grumbling about the sad state of affairs with the front porch.

I fired-up the mower and weed-eater yesterday.

Gentlemen, start your engines!

I don't think we're ready at our latitude yet. I saw our neighbor mowing the yellow straw like stuff in his yard yesterday. At this point the only thing mowers are good for around here is picking up all the dead twigs and leaves that have blown around all winter.
