This week a lot of time was spent picking through large boards of maple in order to mill them down to maximize the amount of yield so that we can get the most out of each board as possible.  This was difficult because the wood that was used tends to bend out of shape badly once it is cut making it a difficult wood to cut down to a perfect squared dimension.  After this was done I made another window sill for a client, which is something I have done multiple times since my beginning at JMO.  Then for the rest of the day was spent preparing multiple pieces to a cabinet assembly for paint.
