    What a tease this is! It's like Biggest Loser when they show the scale ticking and make you wait until the next week to find out how much weight someone lost.

    However, the payoff in this is FAR better than anything on NBC.

    It's amazing that such pedestrian looking wood becomes what we've seen as the finished product. I could've found that wood in the scrap bin of my dad's shop when I was a kid, but it was destined for a much less spectacular ending.
    Unleaded tastes a little tangy, supreme is kinda sour, and diesel tastes pretty good.

    ok....this is near the end of the first week. starting to under cut. this is significant because there is no going back. no way to lower the flap on top for instance. also changed the configuration in the box and starting to play around with the corrugation.
