I took about a 9 month break from woodworking to finish the non-shop part of my basement. I did a couple of woodworking related projects (locker and seat platform) so I thought I would post some pictures here.

This is great! The pole by the stadium chairs is my favorite touch.

Awesome basement! Wish it was in Cubs colors though. HA HA.

I just looked where West Hanover is and you are very close to my family. Make sure you go to Gino’s for me.

Bertha, I I love your profile picture. We have 2 Bostons (CJ, and Larry Bird).

Vinnie, you spelled Cubs wrong, it’s spelled “R-E-D-S.”

I cannot wait to have a basement, it will look a lot like this one. I am in New Mexico now, and I you have a basement, then it means you’re in a casket. I dig the Tug jersey, and the Epiphone on the stand.

Are those actual seats?

Nice man cave, where’s the bar? Vinnie is right though, it would look much better in Cubs colors. ;)

So now you have a nice place to hang out right next to your shop. Nice going.

Thanks everyone.
Yes the seats are from the Vet. The Phillies sold all the seats (sold as a pair) right before they imploded it.
The liberty bell plaque on the side is because these 2 seats were on the ailse.

combining possibly the two best things there are….baseball and woodworking. Really nice use of your skill to display your passion. Im a lifelong Cardinal fan and know and appreciate a true fan (even the Cubs fans). .....Love the Mike Schmidt display. He was a great one.
