    Be careful with your layout, that knot can really screw things up!

    Yep- going to cut it from the center for optimal grain exposure. No knot!

    Save the scrap wood, it will make beautiful grip panels for pistols.
    You can fill the knot with a mixture of sawdust and epoxy.

    Meanwhile, at the donkey factory... upper housing construction is slow- it is a lot of holes. I will be making a dummy bolt for alignment- critical to ensuring the upper components are joined together properly.

    Updated ETA for upper housing is EOW this week. Great overall progress... and painfully slow work... were getting there!

    Another week, more waiting. This is why this has taken 3 years. That being said I chatted with the shop today and the additional time is necessary for proper alignment.. Im happy to wait for that. The DMAC work will fill the down time!
