Hi from Wisconsin!

My name is Sherry and I fell in love with woodworking when I was a kid, while watching and being a grunt for my dad. He had a pretty well equipped shop in our basement. I was the first girl in my high school to take woodworking (in other words, I'm old!); had a wonderful teacher who made me "secretary of the wood butchers" lol!

I'm getting ready to remodel my basement family room. I've installed a gas fireplace and am about to build a surround using the parts from our old upright piano that I took apart. It had lots of beautiful carving on it's case. I'm wondering if anybody else is working on a similar project? I always look for input from people that are more experienced than I am, and that's why I'm here!

Thanks for any advise that you may have and I'll try to throw my two cents worth in when I think I can offer some help.

Welcome from WI! ... Sounds like a cool project. There is a lot of very good (and very important) info about proper basement remodeling procedures over in the insulation section.
