« Part 10: Possible contest? Part 11 of dust stuff series Part 12: Things coming up »

Just wanted to say hi and let everyone know I will be beginning new projects soon. The basement flood problem has been fix. New tile floor is done and today I went and picked up a little Oak and Walnut for my next couple of projects. I finished up the floor at the end of last week and have taken this week off to hang out and play with my kids. It’s been a lot of fun, but I am itching to make some saw dust. The first project will be a shadow box for a Air Force Saber. This will be a first for me. I don’t for see any problems. It’s just a wood box with a glass door…. right? LOL

I thought you guys might like to see the floor that keep me out of the shop.

I know that a tile floor isn’t woodworking but it is what has kept me out of the shop and what will get me back in. My wife is happy and our oldest son has enjoyed the space, so that means I get back to the shop and everyone is happy. I was able to get a week off with the deal so that’s a good all the way around. More to come soon. I hope everyone has a great evening.

Looks like you did a nice job on the flooring. I absolutely hate flooring. It’s just slightly above roofing. Enjoy the week off. They are few and far between.

Good “job” while you were laid back taking it easy. Nothing like an accident to re-arrange life. You did good though and are now free and clear for a while.

Good job on the tile Joey. It turned out great like I knew it would. Laying them diagonally added a level of difficulty, huh? Very nice basement!

I feel ya Joey. Nice job on the floor. I just finished putting a suspended ceiling in my basement a few weeks ago. There is always something else popping up that has to be taken care of that will pull us away from the shop. I hope to “get back on the horse” myself soon.

Well I have started milling up the rough lumber today. I don’t think I will get very far, it’s already getting hot out. I think I will run these last couple of boards through the planer and then sit down to some ice tea.
