The Work Table is fully assembled and ready for finishing. For the past few months I have found it nice to have a work table in the office for doing some small projects or for packing items for shipping. I have been using a card table. My new Work Table will now take its place by tomorrow night. I will be staining it tonight or tomorrow morning. It is still too cold outside to do much and the garage is not much better so I have to see what I can do about putting a poly over the...

Some of you may have seen previous posts about my office and basement. It is now finished off mostly, still needs some trim work and a ceiling but that is an expense we decided to wait on right now.
