« Part 26: Up, Up, & Away! Well Almost!!! Part 27 of Dungeon to Lair: That's the plan at least... series Part 28: Another LJ inspired Project.... »

One of my LJ buds, Jeff (JL7), recently sent my friend “The Chef” a cutting board for testing and performance review. The board is to be put through it’s paces and evaluated. I have to say that the board is a beauty and inspires me to someday obtain the skills to build a few boards of similar quality. That or the abilty to pass off store bought boards as my own creation!!!

Jeff has a great shop and skills to match, but he may have an over inflated ego. Feeding his narcissistic personality seems to be a constant pastime of his, to which he has even designed a JL7 logo and bid’ness cards.

He does fantastic work (just don’t tell him I said that), so it is fitting that he is proud of his “Crafted in The USA” cutting boards.

Jeff sent the board, packaged extremely well. It was protected by “dunnage” consisting of maple & perforated hardboard. I was told to find a fitting project for the “dunnage”. If only I had a wood stove or fire pit!!!

Now than, my shop, skill set & ego are no match to that of the great JL7. However, I will task both my shop & skills to rise to the dunnage challenge!!! I want to thank Jeff for the motivation, inspiration and “dunnage”!!! I designed & built a storage solution for my most prized clamps. I just hope you (JL7) find this project (& me) “worthy”....

My JL7 Inspired Shop Project:

Jeff,
All in good fun. You truely are an inspiration for my wood working & so much more!!! ;^)

Yes, HF clamps & ties deserve the best storage my skills could muster!!! I spared no expense….
Duct tape wasn’t appropriate, so I used the more costly blue painters tape!!! I liked the contrast of the tape with the silver pegboard, bordered by premium maple scraps. Heck, I also paid homage to HF by utilizing HF zip ties for the hanger support!!! That made it a priceless (read: FREE) build!!

Not sure why I didn’t question this earlier…..Taiwan R.O.C.?? Since when is Taiwan part of the R.O.C?

Randy, A properly hung cable tie package should be mounted with a cable tie…..

Jeff,
Short answer to the “Taiwan R.O.C” question: 1912

Long answer: Wikipedia

Marty,
The entire “project” is hung by cable ties, so indirectly the cable ties ARE hung by cable ties!!!

Anyone have ideas for disassembled pallets???

Good job Randy. When Jeff sent me a present, I too made sure not to waste ANY of it!
