    If you aren't competing with them call a local cabinet shop and see if you can buy from them. Otherwise, does Amazon ship down there?

    Old cypruss is nice stuff I'm told. Never seen it up here in the NE.

    Other than tradition, are there any advantages with a wooden mallet? I don't chop mortises by hand much, but when I have a rubber or plastic mallet seems to work fine.

    Thanks Mel. I'm sure not motivated to use an OB prime or topcoat because I want to spray. Are you referring to the PPG or Glidden "Gripper"?
