Thanks for the link FTH. That was fun.

I wanted to get out a compass and start making marks on my screen for better precision. Eyeballing some of those was pretty difficult.

I'm amazed by some of the scores on there. Either amazing "eyeballs" or a lot of time on their hands. :) .

I'm not trying to plug for the company, that's where I get all my cabinet supplies, and they emailed me the link.

Nice.

I have to admit to having plenty of practice at exactly this sort of thing, however, as I have spent hundreds of hours trying to draw geometrical things with Paint. In fact, "hundreds" may be an understatement. I know that in one particular week alone I spent over 70 hours on it, not including break times. There have been other weeks (where I didn't keep any records) that were probably similar. I could probably check my old output of drawings to come up with a good estimate, but that would require hooking up three old computers and making a tally, which could take several hours with each one, and...actually that sounds like fun, I'll do it!

I'm a carpenter and didn't come close to those high scores. :? Does that mean I am a bad carpenter? :lol: Most of the time the crew makes me the saw man. "I saw".

Thanks to a Thanks from Kathrynek, I rediscovered this. I had forgotten all about it, and it still works. What the hell, it's snowing anyway.
