    Basement Project - Complete!

    I started this project 8 years ago. After about a year into the project, I got in a fight with the table saw (I lost) and didn't have much ambition to continue after that. Well...I finally decided to dedicate some time and resources into finishing the project. I started working on it seriously again about 6 months ago. I set a goal of having it finished by New Year's Eve. Well...I met my goal and it came out a lot nicer than I was expecting. I'm extremely pleased with the finished look and my wife and I even hosted a New Year's party. Here's the finished look.

    BEEEEautiful! Those couches look real comfy & it looks like a great place to party!! We'll all be right over!

    I like the wood work, especially the way you did the support pole casing and the flooring. Is the TV wiring hidden behind the wall its mounted on?

    Is that a cassette tape i see on the half wall ledge in the foreground of the one pic??!!

    Thank you! The couches are pretty comfortable, the beer is usually plentiful (and cold), and at times the smoker will be rolling. Great gathering place for sure. The TV wiring is hidden behind the wall as well is the satellite receiver. That is not a cassette tape you see. I believe it may be one of my drink coasters that got cut in 1/2 by the camera.

    Boy that looks nice! Did you raise your safe for flooding reasons? That is a lot of wood wall to do in I think Pine? I put Pine up the other direction in my Daughters Shops show room. After a while it was fun and fast to put up. Just had to figure spacing for the boards keeping splices staggered right. Good Job on yours is that a burnt wood finish if so that is hard to do that light and even!

    I'll be honest. Out of every thing I've ever touched in my life from metal fabrication machines, to saw, to firearms to motors, building and working in a very non OSHA friendly chemical plant...nothing scares me more than a table saw. I have one because sometimes it's needed however I hate the damn thing. I dread using it and will try to come up with every conceivable way to not use it and get away with a miter saw and multiple cuts or a sawzall, reciprocating saw, hell a hack saw....i hate breaking out the table saw.

    Nice work on the basement. I've finished one for my parents when I was 17. I predict in the next few years my wife will want ours done.
