On Thursday, I got an e-mail that said these were on backorder, delivery expected in 2-3 weeks. That shot down any hope of getting my project done before the shop closes for winter. The very next day, I received a notice that they had shipped. This concerned me due to the previous out of stock meassage. I received them two days later. I only wish I could have gotten white oak plugs rather than red oak, to match the White oak of my Adirondack chairs. Still have not completed, but I have all the components now.
