I think this is a Wolf Spider. Remodeling basement, he/she came out when working and then a smaller one.

I seen the silk burrow behind something we just took out hours before we seen the spider.
I didnt think of that until later after my husband smashed both of them.

Few images will be posted.
I just want to make sure it is a Wolf. I heard horror stories about the Brown Rucluse in basements and flipped out.

I "thought" I knew what the Wolf spider looked like, well I do when it is outside in the garden and yard. They seem hairier outside.

Thanks for any help!

NOT a Brown Recluse. I don't think Ohio has them. If you do, they're rare. This is one of the Funnel Web/Grass Spiders and harmless.

actually we do have the Brown Recluse, I know someone that was bit from one, he had to go to the hospital for the infection.
(That map image shows Southwest Ohio as well.)
