I can’t even discribe to you all how I felt Sunday. I don’t think those words are appropriate here, but I’m sure most of you have used them before.
Have you ever assumed something. There is a reason that people say assume makes an ass out of u and me.
I do know better, but my Dad was at the house Sunday and we thought we’d get a bunch done. The first order of business was to get the crown molding and other moldings out of the middle of the floor so we had room to work. Actual first thing we went to the tool store. Every good project starts there.
Anyways, I knew the floor of my shop wasn’t level because there is a large floor sink in the middle one bay and the floor slopes to it. That point was brought up again when I forgot and had to rebuild the walls around the dust collector.
I thought I can’t measure off of the floor, so I’ll make all of the racks exactly the same and sit them tight to the ceiling. That way they will all be level. Got them all made and hung on the wall. Then set my level up there to double check and @*#$. I found out that they didn’t level the walls when the shop was built. They build directly on top of the sloped floor.
This out of level BS is starting to get on my nerves if you haven’t guessed that yet.
I temporarily hung the racks on the walls and got the stuff off the floor. Then I worked on the 18’ long workbench. I got the back brace up and half of the front. The bench is 36” off the floor at the right end and 37.5” at the left end.
I’ll try to get more pictures and drawings posted tonight.
