« Part 12: Major Drum Sander Improvement! Part 13 of The Basement series Part 14: Sanding and Buffing »

Well this has been on the to do list for awhile, not an epic project, but just an effort to get the odd tools and fastners settled into one area. This part of the shop used to be a family room and it had this odd closet (on an angled wall).

More work to be done here, but the basic shape is in place: broke up the the 3 piece tool cabinet, removed casters and made two side by side stacks. Covered with dumpster bound tabletop. Ripped oak strips for bin holders.

And then Charlie the inspector showed up…...

Thanks for looking.

Hey Fernando – NOT an epic project :)

Wondering how your router table plans are coming?

Dave – that’s a sure way to get the inspector out of the shop…..........
