    I slept quite comfortably last night. But I can see a summer UQ in my near future. I might have to see if any local stores carry poncho liners.

    Went and picked all of the materials today. I plan on spending about an hour a day after work each day until it's done. Spent more than i'd like to admit for everything needed, but i also added some hardware to help make setup easier or quicker. I started by mis-cutting my first post, so i'll need to get another one. My saw doesn't cut past 45*, maybe i'll get home depot to cut them for me? What angle are "we" using for the top of the posts?

    I used 70* off a straight cut (20* on the 2x2). The saw I used didn't cut past 45 either, so I cut a jig out of a 2x4 at a 45* angle and clamped that into place to use while I cut the top angles the first 4 (so it was set to 25*), reset the saw to a 5* cut (50* angle before the jig (40* on the 2x2), and cut the two end posts.

    I hope that makes sense. If not, let me know and I'll try to come up with something to better explain it.

    I'm gonna use a table saw and adjust the square and gate instead of my chop saw. The right tool for the right job, and all of that!

    Look to this day: For it is life, the very life of life. In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of your existence. The bliss of growth, the glory of action, the splendour of achievement are but experiences of time.

    For yesterday is but a dream and tomorrow is only a vision; And today well-lived, makes yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well therefore to this day; Such is the salutation to the ever-new dawn!
