    Nice job Bill, turned out great. There's no substitute for organization and knowing where everything is.

    Yes. I’m getting excited. The drawers were a huge set back but now I’m back on track.

    In 2006 I packed up stuff from my basement and garage into boxes and put stuff in storage. Most of the boxes I have opened and been thru somewhat but several I haven't. Even the ones I went thru have a variety of stuff in them. I'm sure I'm gonna find stuff I forgot I even had.

I used my biscuit jointer and glue and clamps. Today I did initial sanding. Ends will be cut to size and squared up and the ends and front edges will get maple on them to dress them up.

    :hello: My fireplace was not drawing correctly. It's called a zero clearance fireplace. This past Sat. I replaced my fireplace draw vent pipe. The pipe was a plastic flex 4" dryer vent. :dontknow:. :banghead:. It melted. :nono: Also I installed 3/8" OSB on the inside of the fireplace walls. I drilled four 3" holes in the ceiling to let heat out. The chimney O.D. is 14 ft. tall, 4 ft. deep & 7 ft. wide. It has a divider at 8' so that the double flue pipe does not flex.
