So I’m out in the shop last night… working on clearing the piles of stuff off of my assembly table / bench. Let’s see, I have a couple of surplus closet shelf brackets, and I have a 48” long piece of 12” wide 1/2” plywood. What kind of trouble can I get in with that right?
Well inspiration, or stupidity led me to mounting the brackets, with their bottoms 1/8” higher than the top of the molding for the entry door to the shop…
4 wall anchors, and 8 screws later, I have a perfect spot of small doo dads that get VERY infrequently used. But what?
Well, for now, it will hold a surplus supply of Lliquid Nails for Projects, a couple of sets of salvaged locking swivel casters, and some small boxes of misc low voltage electrical / radio type components, caulk saver foam inserts, weather stripping that sort of light weight stuff.
Is it ideal? No. But it’s not much weight, just bulk. It is VERY infrequently accessed stuff, and it needed to get off of my bench.
Now that I have moved that stuff, I have run into a large supply of “What the heck is that?”. I think I need to move the trash can closer to the bench…
