« Part 1: The Motivationally Challenged issues a demand!!! Part 2 of Dungeon to Lair: That's the plan at least... series Part 3: Temporary Insanity (maybe permanent)!!! »

Has it really been 3 weeks since I last “blogged” or “bloggided” or is it just plain “BLABBING”? I’ll go with blabbing!

I have made progress, which is surprising considering the amount of napping, web surfing & procratination I was able to get in.
Let’s see if I am technologically skilled enough to get some pictures up here!

Dag nab it!!! I said picture not pitcher!

Here are a few “Before” pictures of my current Dungeon, aka my future workshop Liar.


It has been said; A clean desk is the sign of an insane mind!
Apply that to my basement “shop” and no way could you have me “Committed”!

I have not worked on this area yet. I have been concentrating on preparing the secret room that will house all the imminent beautiful treasures (read projects) I shall hoard (read create/build)! Of course before I can create objects of beauty and admiration, I must have lumber from which to construct from. Hence I need lumber storage!

This is the Secret Lumber Room I speak of.

I summoned my loyal servants and told them to “Make Ready” my lumber room! Ok, it was me talking to myself. Maybe there is a sliiiiiiight chance I could be committed to an institution. NO, I say to a Loony Bin, committed to Lumber storage am I.

Prepped!!!

Painted!!!

Rack Installed!!!

A Stacked Rack!!! (Mind out of the Gutter!)

The “Lumber Rack” is 4×4 posts drilled every 6” for removable/adjustable pegs. The pegs are 1/2” black pipe covered with plumbing insulation. Made extra pegs for future use. Right now I’m only storing dimensional lumber for shop & general storage shelving.
Ok. not a lot of progress for 3+ weeks of time, but progress none the less. As long as the North East (Vermont) stays snow free, I’ll have shop time. With a semi-organized shop, the pace should pick up a bit.
The time is soon approaching; I need to build a Thein Baffle pre-seperator, install my 2HP HF DC, build an Ambient Air Cleaner. Once all that is done, I’ll be able to breath much easier, both figuratively and literally.

Well, That’s the plan at least…

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Just the motivation I need (as REO Speedwagon sang), To keep pushin’ on!

I’ve been down in the “Dungeon” all morning re-organizing the basement shop. It is coming along. By this evening, I should actually be able to put to use most of my tools & machines.

Ok Slacker (refering to myself here), break time is over! It is time to return to the drudgery within the bowels of the domicile.

If I don’t return…. Please come searching for me and bring ”Sustenance & Grog”!!! A handsome reward will be offered!

Yep, nice job! Expand it towards the door and then get a metal cabinet to place in there to hold all your stains, and other solvnents. Super use of the space!

redryder,
Good question! I guess I didn’t consider it “Worthy” enough to be included in the amalgamation of the projects here on LJs!

I actually have a few “Shop Projects” that I plan on posting as a group. I need to take some photos. So stay tuned & I WILL have a project post for the “Project Junkies” out there!

bullethead,
I am still sorting out organization & storage. I will eventually have a designated finishing/spray booth. It will have a repurposed furnace blower for positive air pressure & vent out a window. So I need to figure out the space & set up of both the spray booth & finishing supplies.

Thanks for the interest! See you in the threads/posts!!
