I need to get the ends of pine 1x4s cut at 45 degree angles (to stretch several large canvases) - Lowes would only do straight cuts. Anybody know where I can go to get this done? Preferably north side

Go to blick and buy a frame kit. They slot together, so are sturdier. Or buy a hand saw. Or a Swiss Army knife

I ended up buying a mitre box and handsaw - Blick doesn’t create kits in the size I need, and this will be just as sturdy if correctly constructed.

You could try a park district wood shop. There is one in (the actual) Wicker Park. I think there are others.

Thank you! That’s super helpful

Dear Fishbowl PPCers I need your help!

A client is insisting we used Adobe bod manager for their campaigns, and neither me nor my team have experience with it.

We're also not on a timeline where we can really get up to speed on it ahead of a couple deadlines.

I've also argued for budget for external consulting hours and that's been disapproved.

I'm on my own. Or am I?

Hoping some kind soul with experience managing Google Ads through Adobe can help me out.
