|Really looking good.
Two observations...yeah that concept of quitting before trying to squeeze in that last little task is a great tip. I adopted that more recently than I care to admit. I have screwed up a lot of project by trying to rush that one last step before dinner.
And...I like your approach of working things out as you go. I used to try and plan out every step, only to find out that not infrequently a planned step simply would not work as planned.
My recent plate girder project was tackled that way. I simply started cutting, hacking and gluing things together until I got the result I wanted. Projects don't always work out that way. But a lot of times you just gotta figure things out as you go.
Regarding the second observation...I fell victim in a recent machine shop project. I had 12 6-32 holes to tap, and it was getting close to bed time.
Wanting to get all 12 tapped before quitting for the evening I kinda hustled the tapping. Until I broke the tap.
All efforts to remove the broken tap have failed.
So I get to build that part all over again.
