Mark, they are from 2X4 Basics, they are a high strength poly-resin material. I have a reloading bench across from the brew station made out from the same.

Looking good already!

Not in Afghanistan I hope?

Nahh not anymore...I couldn't get enough after 20 years of service so I went back as a civilian contractor until I broke my leg.

Sweet.  Brewing inside rocks, I feel so much more at ease when I'm inside.

If I break my leg can I come home?  :o

At 2 months to go I am not sure it would be worth it. I am definately NOT coming back as a contractor though - I hate this place.

I get to finish the brewery in my basement when I get home.

Snowtiger...sorry thats kind of misleading I was on vacation and broke my leg.

Broken leg = termination from company. I was prepared to stay awhile longer, like until 2014 and retire really early.
