    You seem to be real good with wood. Want to make something for George?

    I didn’t have a router — nor the know how — so I used a hammer and chisel. It took a long time, and even longer to do the second one but it came out great. Nice work! I wish I had wood shop skills like you do.

    Thanks texdon. A hammer and chisel would take a while. I don't know if I have the patience.

    I'll have an "empty box" once they finish it until I install benchs, cupboards and what not. My center piece that I plan to "build around" will be one of thsee custom-made benches.

    Thanks, I discovered them last year. They've already been negotiated into the house cost with wife. "If you get granite counters in the kitchen, I'm getting this for the reloading/wine cellar room!" :D

    Okay, we have talked about the size room you want to build. I estimate if I build 2 more long gun racks I can store up to ~100 rifles/shotguns. If I remove the wine rack maybe 40 more.

    Having said that how big of a wine rack do you want?

    Mak, that looks nice but I'd rather have a bench system like Don has. More utilitarian. Except I'd install T tracks and have nylon covers when they're not in use.
