Hunting Down Hardwood (MJ Sailing - Ep 274)

We go to Maryland's #1 lumberyard to find wood for our cabinet trim. But are they going to have what we're looking for?

This week is a toss between a bunch of small things we've been doing here and there. Since most of our attention (in real life) is addressing the port hull to get it ready for primer, we thought we'd share a few small projects that have been going on for the past few weeks.

Matt bonds in one of the bulkheads for our galley cabinets, and then begins work on the three drawers we'll have inside the boat (all in the galley). Then, he builds the face for Georgie's litter box area, a hidden away place which we *finally* decided on after thinking about it for the past year.

And the part I have been the most excited about for the past few weeks...going to get the hardwood which will be the trim around all our cabinets. The lumber yard we go to has SO many beautiful pieces inside...but does it carry the one simple item we're requesting?

We hope you enjoy!

Much love,
Jessica, Matt & Georgie
