I have grandeous ideas and visions of what my shop will be and look like. It may take weeks, months, years, even decades before I actually obtain my “dream shop”. However, with out snow falling from the sky, I’ve had some time to work towards my future wood workers “Lair”.
My shop time is anything but efficient, but it is productive time. Every once in a while ideas need to be “tabled”, or “put on hold”. My latest inspiration needed to be shelved, err are SHELVES!!!
Here is what I started with:
The all to familiar, repurposed oak flooring, old particleboard shelf and some shelving brackets from the ReStore. All in all, about $5.00 in material costs.
Things got really hot when I broke out the heat gun to remove the edge banding on the shelf parts. Meaure once, measure twice, measure thrice, I even measure a fourth time if needed (& it usually is needed)! A little rip hear, a planing or two there, cut a-cross to the SCMS for final lengths.
Wow, how did that happen…..
ALL the pieces parts fit!!!
Who’d a thunk it???
One shelf down & one in clamps:
The next step would have been easy, but I didn’t think about where these shelves were going to end up. That’s the beauty of freNch cleats, they can go almost anywhere. Hence, it took all of my mental ability to figure out where to install these little organiztional marvels.
I think I have it all figured out…
At least until I rearrange things!!!
The Drill, Driver, Impact & charging Station:
The (temporary) WS3000 Shelf:
Yeah Stumpy, I’m a gonna build a “Stumpy WS3000 Sharpening Station”.....
Here is a group shot of both shelves, along with some friends:
As I said, I’m less than efficient and not a speed demon, when it comes to projects, but I do progress ever so sloooowly. I heard some people like it real slow and steady! Yup, that’s what I’m going with.
Tomorrow (or next week, month….), I’ll shed some more light on my shop transition from “Dugeon to Lair”!!!
Well, that’s the plan at least!!!
-- Randy-- I may not be good...but I am slow! If good things come to those who wait.... Why is procrastination a bad thing?
