The walk isn't long in length. Your typical average home. The soldier course is mitered too. We don't allow gaps in the soldier pavers (like red shed's border above has . )

I have a pretty good system to marking and cutting.

Actually less than 36 mh now that I think about it. The last day also included laying the last section of pavers.

WOW. 36 man hours to cut in that walkway....Where I work 36 man hours would have been the entire job.
I would have had the entire soldier course cut in 2 hours, with a guy following behind me swapping out cuts and laying in soldier course, with a guy following behind him installing snap edge. done and done.
And don't so anything about quality of work versus production or anything like that. Go click the link in my sig, you can see the quality of work we do.
We just do it much faster and better than anyone else. haha.

Oh and we have one table saw, older than dirt. Probably used once or twice this year when we had to duplicate hundreds of halves or miters for a particular job.
But we have 5 demo saws, three of them get used every single day and cut hundreds of thousands of linear feet a year.
It's not for everyone, but we perfected it.

With regards to the base width on the left vs the right, looks like you thought the walkway was going more to the right? On the left it doesn't look like there is much of a base extending past the border

This has probably come up 100x... My guys hate the table saw. It we marked out a radius walk, the curved marked pieces are easily cut on a table saw? Is it usually a straight cut through the saw, but since its such a small portion of the curve when placed back it maintains the curve? Or is there some turning and manipulation of the paver in the table saw?

JB ....That's not 136 a man hr... that's a paltry 45 per man per hr X 3 men is 136 per hr, rates near me would be on a higher scale.

A good guy on the tablesaw will follow the curve no matter how tight the radius is

Stillwater maybe I'm confused... Dvs said he had 36 man hrs... You said you would have charged 5000-6000... If its $45 per man hour it would be $1620. You would be charging $139 a man hour to be at 5000. (we don't know how many men he had working, but that doesn't matter man hours are the total hours (3 men working for 12 hours or 4 working at 9) =36 man hours
