Lumber Storage

02-11-2010 02:05 AM by kosta | 3 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to talk about lumber storage. Most woodworkers have a lumber rack you almost never see a shop without a lumber rack either in the main part of the shop or outside. I have never used a lumber rack just because I have never had enough wall space. The problem with lumber racks is that to get to 1 board you really have to move a lot of other boards. Some lumber racks are 7 ft off the ground. If your up on a ladder moving 15 lb boards around that kinda sucks. Its not...

G’day everyone, I really would like to thank everyone that posted a comment on my very first blog.

Well, I was supposed to just replace the old vanity with some cabinets that they got from a friend, because the cabinets they got were in better condition than the ones currently in the house. Seemed pretty straight forward, nothing really difficult or interesting to see here, folks, so move along…..... Oh, wait, nothing fits right, go figure.

If interested please post or send me a PM and I will try and get it all organized again. I know there are several LJ’s in the valley and others here getting away from th...
