I learned a lesson then. Always ask for a non-refundable deposit to cover the materials. I spent several hundred dollars on the wood and glass and it now stands in our family room. If I knew that I was going to keep it, I would have used oak or cherry instead.
Thanks Colin!

Yes, I always take a non-refundable deposit before I commence work, it has to be done I'm afraid... the only exception is if the client is a return customer that I know.
