I won't retire until I'm well past 100%. A 10 to 15% chance of failure is FAR too high in my book. I'll gamble and take risks on a lot of things in life, but not running out of money in retirement.

5 o'clock, of course. :2funny:



Thank you!



Thanks. Good to hear. I used the same wood and stain I used to build everything else, so I'm glad it looked like it wasn't added later.

Good point with the hole depth.

Also, if you use Tapcons, don't use longer bolts than you have to. They have a tendency to break off if you're going down several inches, especially the 1/4" ones....

I didn't even get that far into looking into it, but that's crazy expensive. Apparently we're not the only people who think the valuation is nuts.
