    5/4 = five quarter, or 1.250" 1 1/4" …. 10/4 is 10 quarter or 2.500" 2 1/2"
    The "oversize" is usually left on so the wood can be milled to thickness and finished smooth to a "whole" dimension.

    Exactly! Slabs are rough cut in quarters - the language of the sawyer - and after dry, planed smooth to consistent thickness. While a "standard" finished board (S4S, or Surfaced 4 Sides) is 3/4" thick, I like a bit more bulk in most projects so I mill to 5/4 or 1.25" which gives me a finished board about an inch thick, or a bit more. You can always plane down more, or resaw the board for thinner stock. I had a couple of nice logs about 13+" diameter but only around 6' long so I had took a couple of 5/4 slabs, then cut a couple of slabs from the center section at 2 1/2" for something like a sofa table, entry hall table, or a nice bench with a more substantial thickness, and then finished with more 5/4 slabs on each of the two.

    Seth, behind that nice laser engraved sign I see a string of mini-Christmas lights! I did the same when we moved in to this home, and they work great! My electrician put a string of plugs on Romex atop the upper cabinets from a common switch, and the mini-lights are perfect. Your kitchen looks amazing!

    I wasn't sure if it was worth it but I'm glad I did it. It doesn't do much for lighting but the glow does look neat.

    Seth, it looks really nice! I really like that counter top! Allyson and I have been thinking of doing something similar in ours. Let me know when you're getting ready to move. I hear they might be placing a tech at our sewer city location. I will need an acreage with a shop if I can get the position.

    My Dad bought it over 40 years ago. He used some for trim and casing for bookshelves then stacked the rest in a barn on his farm and forgot about it.

    A guy I work with always calls it that because it always smells like a sewer treatment plant every time he drives through there. I found it fitting as well.
