The only people who would give themselves a 10 are the people who cannot
nail two boards together and have it come out right. My late brother-in-law
was always showing off his "perfect" craftsmanship. There were times when I
just barely made it out of the room before I started laughing.

I'd have driven the screw through the face frame
INTO my finger - ditto for the brad. Avoid using
the cement nail shooter.
Should I deduct points for Bondo?
When you don't start out with a plan, with its
expectations, you're guaranteed at least a 7.
I've had a screw or two hit a finger coming out the
other side. <grumble, grumble>
Not if you stain and poly it afterwards. Then deduct
all points (and 100 extras) for doing the trio.

In my case, there is always a drop or two on every project, lots more sweat,
and this time, even tears. I could join the band.
Done that! ... only needed to do it once though, many years ago.
I learn real fast from pain ... obviously not so fast when it comes to
planning, cutting and/or measuring.
Welp, in this case I bought the local Woodcraft out of their tubes of
"Golden Oak", stainable, wood filler. As I've said before, with all my
experience hiding screwups, I been seriously thinking about buying a case of
latex caulk and joining the local trim carpenter's union ... but I think you
have to speak spanish.
Ahhhh ... a loophole in the satisfaction category. Ill take that into
account next time.
