I hear ya, about the construction. I’ve been laid off for too long myself. Good job on the benches! The 2×2s is an interesting touch.
Thanks for posting, and good luck to you.

Gabe, wish both of you were here. They can’t get anyone to work here.

Nice job. Wish you luck.

Nice tables. Construction is pretty much zero here in my area too. I talked to one guy that found a job on CL. Good luck guys.
You might want to take a look at the Blue Book site and check out the construction part. I’m getting request for bids on commercial projects all over Georgia, SC and NC.
If you can’t find the link I’ll get it off one of the contractors email I’ve been getting. Let me know.
