I started my project today that I have been researching for the last 3 months. I find that it takes me a lot longer to do anything anymore do to a multitude of issues mainly my body betraying me physicaly and mentally. But yet I was able to get up on time and make my way to a new lumber store that I found that had the “European Beech” in stock I am over the moon that I have it here in my shop, I was so close to ordering it from online and was dreading buying stock unseen and having to pay shipping too. So I guess my 3 hours it takes me to get to the lumber store is well worth it since I am unable to drive mainly due to funds to modify our car. I can’t wait to go back and get the lumber for my hanging tool cabniet but need to finish my tool tray so my bench stays a little cleaner which is a big thing for me due to limited reach I plan on simple end joints and attaching it with t-nuts. I am still giddy like a little kid gets in a candy store from my trip to the lumber yard! It’s the little things that bring me joy. Now I need to go set up my router to plan some edges.

Thanks I will try to keep stuff posted I hope to clean my shop first before I start taking pictures it seams that choir is never ending.a question to some about the controversial tool tray has anyone heard of or ever gone trough with putting a peice of plywood sloped under their bench top to catch the dust in it so it does not fallin the tool tray? I’m thinking of doing it and make a vacuum port then I can plug all my bench holes and remove the dust t hat would other wise shower my tools on the shelf underneath? My curiosity thinks it would work as long ad I leave enough depth in it for my hold downs to work??

I finally got my tool tray built I just need to get some more bolts from the store and then do a final sanding and finish it but for now it’s going to be used.
