« Part 33: Almost ready to finish up the library... Part 34 of Workshop Development series Part 35: The library is done! »

I know y’all want to see photos, you are just going to have to be patient for a couple more days… Today is going to be install day. In what free time I did have over the weekend, I took the opportunity to fill holes, prime and paint the wall that the library will be mounted on. Now mind you, I didn’t bother with sanding down the patches all that well. It IS a garage after all… and most of the patches will be hidden behind the library, but it’s done. Gone is the badly yellowed paint that has been on these walls since 1984, in place is a nice bright coat (2 coats actually) of Glidden Semi Gloss bright white base (no tint whatsoever). Tried to make it as easy as possible to match later.

Once the library is installed the strong tie bench gets put back in place, and a fairly large scale whole shop cleanup project will be undertaken with LOML’s help, so it shouldn’t take too long…

God willing and the creek don’t rise this will be a short task, and photos will be pending tonight…

I still have to measure, mark, and cut the shelf liner for this cabinet, but I feel really good about it already…

My next project is going to be in the house, and involve drywall… You guys recall me mentioning the water heater stand I built a few weeks ago? Once the shop is clean, so I can get to my sheet goods, it’s time to get to the sheet rock, and close that thing in, and trim it out… And of course paint the old part of the stand…
