Pam, read your posts and thought I would add that unsolicited comment. Finish carpentry takes patience, skills, a fine eye, and being a perfectionist. I can see why they spent two hours. My grandpa was an excellent finish carpenter from the old school and I wish I had all his qualities. They don't make carpenters like him anymore. Don't know about your brothers, but I know a lot of rough carpenters that I wouldn't let go near certain jobs.
You heard from both sides, the patient perfectionist will cut long and sand his way to the perfect fit and the rough carpenter will get it close and fill it with something or cover it up. Either way, you probably can't tell at a distance. Good luck to you and your husband.
