OK everything I try does not work!

I don’t even own a camera so I had to bug my good neighbor that even edited the footage and added a title etc.
After two attempts to get it to work I have failed! Kind of like learning to do new things with tools – the first few attempts are just that attempts.
I am so naive that I read it as ending on the 22nd (today) so I thought I had till midnight today to get it to work. I see that that was an incorrect assumption on my part so I loose all around.

It’s never too late for another shop tour! I’m just downloading it now, but I just wanted to say thanks. I have some internet slowdown issue right now as this thing looks like it’s going to take a week to get from blip, but I anxiously look forward to watching it!

dataman, great tour. My wife and I always loved the dome homes and yours is very unique. I like your color coded blast gates that you made, smart idea. Now, make something really nice with all that cherry wood and post it. Thanks.

Great shop Ray. Glad we finally got to see it after all your troubles. I really like the dome structure and the way you are able to have the storage in the lower elevations where you aren’t going to be working anyway. Obviously, it makes for a larger workspace. Wonderful solutions for storage and organization too. The tote for bins, blast gates, and stands for various tools are ingenious and in true LJ style. The ‘pride and joy cabinet’, is it specifically for tool storage or did you salvage it?

The metal cabinet was purchased used from work when they where closing up a modification shop and they used it for parts storage. They had 2 but my boss at that time wanted the other one so I got only one. It is fantastic for tools. Drawers are not too deep and full extension so you can see and reach everything in it.

Great tour. Thank you for sharing

12 hours of down loading, but it was worth it – I was watching at 2 am this morning -

I like the use of the metal multidraw storage units.

Tony – you have great perseverance!
Thanks for your interest!
The unit is so heavy (empty) that I had to remove the drawers to relocate it.
Its well worth it though. There is tons of storage in it and its all convenient.

Have your say...
