Are you routing it in? That's going to be pretty cool.

When you are making something for someone, it takes a lot out of you. When you are making something just for any customer who might buy it, it does not have the same meaning from my standpoint. I built a cradle for a family friend years ago, I don't know how I was able to put that much time and soul in it. It went on to be used by our family and another family friend. Hang in there, it will be worth it.

When I retired, my crew presented me with a wooden plaque with every aircraft I worked on I’m my forty year career carved into it. I cannot express how much that meant to me knowing how much work went into that. I’m sure your customer will have equal feelings after seeing your excellent work.
