I'm surprised he signed it off as well. In my county you get a year from when you take out the permit. You can apply for an extension but they don't let you drag things out.

I second the vote for silicone and clamps. I would tape off the sides of your cutout so you don't get silicone on the wood. I would also consider finishing or oiling the top and cutout sides before...
