    Always good to get refresher video tips. Thanks, George. The measuring video reminded me about building countertops at Habitat house. Counter was "L" shaped, so I needed to measure for the wall to end of counter. I read 85" on my tape. That seemed to be too big, so I re-measured and got 58". Now I have a lefty-righty tape measure, so I don't read the numbers upside down.
