Thanks Aaronlinkous! I appreciate that very much. I have indeed made more progress...
I have been working on a wine rack for the small area to the left of the basement stairs. There is an old picture of that area above in post #456
I spent a lot of time trying to reverse engineer some wine racks I found online to figure out spacing and have finally started cutting all of the cedar strips and putting the rack together.
My rack is going to be 34 11/16" wide, 13 3/8" deep, and 69 11/16" high and made from cedar wood. I will post a picture of my design today. Should hold around 128 bottles.
I am still waiting for chairs to show up and having a hard time getting in touch with the person getting them for me.
If I don't hear anything this week, I will most likely buy them from Roman here on AVS.
In the meantime, I just keep plugging along on other parts of the basement.
Granite tile is going to be in this weekend and I may have a chance to put it in, but I have a busy schedule. I have to stain and seal my deck which will take a very long time.
