Re: just bought this DW Kit.......
Wow that's a lot of dough. I would have waited till he lowered the price. I really don't think that kit would have moved until it got in the middle 3's. When someone buys exotic finishes, it's assumed that they will never get close to what they paid for it at selling time. I have an olive ash burl exotic veneer on my DW's. The grain on your kit is way nicer than mine. It is a beauty for sure. Congratulations, they're gorgeous.
The best way to do art, is to dispense with good and bad...and just get on with it.
