Not a huge or complex project, but one that makes the shop a nicer place.
Picked up eight Stanley shop charts a while back. Like, quite a while back. June of this year, specifically.
Well, with the shop floor project done and the charts managing to stay together that whole time, a more permanent solution had to be found vs. having them on a shelf gathering dust. So I slapped together some very rough frames…
glued together all the half lap joints…
then reached for a vile beast… the ‘lectric routah. It was used to dirty the shop, make a most holy racket and, as a side benefit, cut the rabbets for glass. Sorry, no pics of that…
After cleaning the shop, I chiseled the corners and measured the openings for glass. A day later, the local lumber yard had eight pieces of glass cut just for me!
I laid the glass in the openings, added a cardboard filler to take up the rest of the cavity space, then added foam backer board via staples to the whole backs of each frame.
Hung and done!
As always, thanks for looking!
