"Perfection" in Woodworking and Construction

Perfection. Just what is that? 

According to the dictionary it means, "lacking nothing essential to the whole; complete of its nature or kind; being without defect or blemish.” In my experience very few things in this world live up this high ideal and those that do are purely subjective judgments. Thankfully I learned about the illusive nature of perfection when I was young.
 
I was 21 when I started my apprenticeship as a cabinetmaker and of course I knew everything.

Remodeling Your Kitchen? “Piece of Cake” NOT!!!

If you’ve ever lived through a remodel in your home chances are you would agree with the above NOT!!!

Utopian versus English
“Piece of cake” means “pain-in-the-butt
“No problem” means “no problems except the ten we didn’t mention”
