September 2020

Panel 1
Greg: Holy hell, why is wood so goddamned expensive?
Liz: It is? I thought it was pretty inexpensive last time we looked.

Panel 2
Greg: Sure, the basic construction lumber is relatively cheap, but for a windowsill, you need something that will hold up. Hardwood will last forever, takes a good edge from the router, and is almost perfectly flat.

Panel 3
Greg: Thankfully we don’t need to use oak, which costs roughly a day’s wages per linear foot, but even poplar or pine is 10 times the cost of construction lumber!

Panel 4
Liz: I sure hope this sudden frugality isn’t a ploy to try and get out of making me some sweet-ass windowsills.
Greg: Oh, it definitely was, but that doesn’t make the complaint any less valid!
