Hmmmmmmmm! Walmart bench????? LOL! Where did you get that idea? LOL! The framing for the bench looks very professional. I like screws and carriage bolts in functional equipment.

You’re sliding into home-plate!

Nice to have smooth, level shop floors.

Blackie, I use a padded metal stool from Sears and an old Coke stool from the 1930s. You might want a second one to give visitors a place to sit. I really like all the things you have done with your shop. Nice work…now back to boxes.

I’d like to know two things: 1st, your home page says you’re in Texas, how did you get Idaho wood? I used to live in Idaho and we got Oregon wood there!!

2nd, with joinery skills like yours, I would NEVER buy anything from walmart that had to do with furnishings.

Randy,

Sorry for being a ButtHead. My wife says it’s not good humor. Tend to be a Smart A__

I have a padded purchased stool. And as Al said I’m sure you’d rather be making boxes, and some cash to pay for the materials for your shop rehab. I would.

Later

I was joking too. I LOVE your shop and I have a MUCH worse chair in my shop. Course, it came from the same people that the black everything-in-the-shop came from… But anyway, like I said, your shop is to die for and I drool over all the stuff that I see in it. Even the walmart chair….

Oh I posted the stool on purpose to give you guys some ammo, I was expecting no less from you all, love the humor :)

Thanks for the comments Alan, Sander and Tom, actually it was last years sells that allowed me to make this addition with all of it’s furnishings and I still have a good size pot left over from it :) but yes I am working as fast as I can in order to get back up and running, I still have a few more projects to finish and there’s still exterior work that needs to be done on the addition.

I was wondering if I was going to catch flack from the bench lumber :) it was purchased from my local Lowes.

Hi Randy. I’m a picture guy and I first scrolled down the process photos to see how you built the stool!

Nice idea on the bench. When I built mike I use those round nuts with a thread through the side, That is slick to use a carriage bolt and a standard nut on the inside. that give good holding power for the frame. You have been super busy for the last 6 months! Almost near the end where projects start flowing through!!
Nice job, Cheers, Jim
