    Before I go all Tim Allan on you, I had to start in the very beginning.

    The basement was a big project. Though I can conceptualize pretty well in my head, I know from other projects that I can get a better plan if I actually make a plan.

    So, some measuring and drawing were the first order of business. Even rough sketches help nail down details that are only finalized as you are actually putting up walls.

    Measure and mark...

    My main measuring tool was a 30' Lufkin rule. For longer bits, where I was planning hallways and general room locations, I used a 100' tape. But the Lufkin was the workhorse here.

    I used the plumbob in the near right for one wall before I realized how much it would slow me down and bought the 3 axis laser level in the center of the pic. I ended up using it for the layout of almost everything in the basement from the walls to the ceilings to the shelves in the closet. Simply indispensable.

    Also indispensable: levels, steel rules, framing square, speed square, chalk line, drywall T square, surveyor's string, telephone twine, voltage sensor and outlet tester. The telephone twine has a sticky wax coating which lets you secure a line just by wrapping a couple turns around a nail ore something - no knot needed - thus speedy and un-doable. It does tend to get interesting when discovered by a long-haired cat as the larger cat and I found out. It only took an hour to free him....

    And of course marking things like pencils, Sharpies and paint and Post-Its.

    Thbbbbbt...

    Cool - all those cables reminds me of a pic I saw of the Beatles - I'll have to hunt it up.

    I suppose I could post the rest of the tool pics I started to post too...

    edit - found it. The Beatles in Paris on 6/20/1965
