And I’m crawling!!!
Crawling towards an organized and hopefully efficient shop, or as I refer to it…...
from “Dungeon to Lair”
Without a properly set up shop….
Five minute tasks take hours to complete. That is frustrating! But that frustration is easing ever so slooooowly.
“A place for everything and everything in it’s place”, that is my goal.
But how to get from this:
To the embodiment of organization is not easy. Well NOT for me anyway!!!
So here is a pictoral of my recent progress.
The future of my organizational strategy.
Oak flooring to be repurposed into French Cleats:
Repurposed flooring milled and prepped:
French Cleats installed:
The other, now not blank, wall:
Now that the French Cleats are installed, it is time to start making a few peg hook attachments, from which, stuff, err tools will hang from. To make them quickly (quick for me at least), accurately and consistantly…..
(imagine an Irish song playing) it’s time to do a JIG!!!
Down & Dirty DP Jig for drilling peg holes:
The magnificent Jig in action:
The completed Tool Suspension Apparatus
(TSA, NOT to be confused with removing your shoes!!!):
Hangin’ 10 (eight actually, but I couldn’t resist the surfing reference!!!):
Look, they line up pretty well, even if I do say so myself!!!
Where would a wannabe wood worker be without…..
(I bet you SAW this coming!)
I took the pictures, so I might as well post them:
OK, one more!!!
I consider it a crime to not be organized, I’m also against Organized Crime, but that is a whole other topic. As an upstanding citizen of LJs, I’m on my way to an efficient, orderly shop (and a whole lot less frustration). There are more custom, specialty supports, along with little shelves and what nots to be made. Those will be made in the days to come. More French Cleats will be installed and soon, I will be walking (NOT crawling) in a well organized shop.
Well, that’s the plan at least!!!
