But it's on the back and it's not nearly as bad as it looks. And at this point aslong as it keeps the catfish out everything is great!

Sorry dude, it was just way to obvious not to say somethin. I guess if it keeps the catfish out it's doing its job. The guy that cut your wood was probably from the plumbing or blinds department. I watch them like hawk when I need for them to cut stuff, unfortunately it has been more frequently with 4 x 8's because I got rid of my truck and can't fit it in my Honda unless it's ripped in half.
With no saw how did you improvise?

XD I know. I'm pretty sure he was from the garden center because he had to ask two people for the code to turn on the saw, then he couldn't find a tape measure. I just don't see how he could have cut it crooked. The board wasn't warped or anything and the saw cuts straight! Unless the blade was a square or something O_o..

Anyway, I used my dremel to cut it. xD I had a bit that was kind of like a saw but not so I just tried it and it worked sort of ok. ^_^

Good show, not too bad for something that wasn't meant for that purpose. The guy from the garden center probably would of lost a finger or something.
HEY, need some more pics.

haha believe me, I love pics just as much as the rest of you. It's just that at this point not much has changed.. Unless you want me to make a video of my cats getting mad at me because I closed their fun house..
