Hi Guys,

We're coming to the end of a large basement project. One small area developed into an interesting recess due to earlier framing parameters for a water meter closet, foundation contour and bath framing. The recess deserves something nice that won't cost much. In the past, that would have meant maybe a trimmed out panel or a mediocre prefabed nook, neither being very spectacular.

This evening, however, after a few quick earlier measurements of the space, I made the parts for a decorative and functional shelving unit. The customers love the idea. It took about 2 hours, at home, while I was being constantly interrupted by my kids who wanted me to throw them a few pitches now that baseball season has started. I made a deal with them trading time for throws with time for cuts. I used a PC 325 and a 3 hp Dewalt router on the SRK. It was simple. A year ago, the shelving unit wouldn't have even occured to me because we would have had to outsource it and wait forever only to over pay.

The most important thing I learned this evening is that my kids are getting older and the ball now comes back at me off the bat a lot faster than I can pitch it.

Very nice use of your time and material. And I'm sure the "added value"
to your customer will not go un-noticed for getting future work.

Regards, Joe
