Well, I think I have most of the big stuff where I want it, so it is now down to unpacking the rest of the boxes, finishing up pegboard and getting the permanent wall up to separate the shop from the rest of the basement.

Guess this how everything got started if you look back far enough. I was layed off from my log home construction job in PA in 2007. Was off long enough to collect one of those unemployment checks before I found another job working at an antiques wood shop. Well, my second daughter was born two months into that job and after daycare and gas, I was keeping 5 to 10 dollars a week. So I quit to watch after the kids and to try to find a more lucrative job.
