Hoping everyone had a good Holiday Season!
As for me being out of touch - My apologies, but not much was going on - at least not in the basement or HT.
Our Holidays started out rough, but did improve dramatically. Started out in November with a really big health scare in our family > the "C" word!! Fortunately; after 4 weeks and many tests it turned out to be a "one-of-a-kind" freak situation involving lymph nodes and mysterious lumps, turned out to be a very good story - all is well - NO cancer. Made for a VERY Thankful Thanksgiving !!
We no more than get this behind us and my trusty '86 Suburban starts acting up. First the tranny failed and was repaired, 3 weeks later the rear end blew up. Got a junk yard rear end, then a prompt visit to the Chevy dealer to trade for a "Pre-bankruptcy" sale on an '08 Equinox. Sure am glad my heavy hauling for the basement is finished!!
So I finally got back down there and started my column enclosures.
The left side column cover is almost finished. Took (stole) some tips from Queen DVDs build (thanks Queen). I decided to finish my columns with 3/4 " MDF, and will wrap these in GOM.
The opening at the top is for my sconce light
And the Right hand column still needs to be done, (I packed these full of leftover insulation)
Also a question:
I will be covering these with GOM (after I round the front edges with a router). Am undecided if I should just paint these flat black and cover with GOM directly, or perhaps I should wrap them in batting before covering with GOM..??
