Okay I am pretty sure all but the most uh, seasoned among us is familiar with Tetris right? That block stacking video game where you have to slide certain shape objects into certain shape holes by spinning and sliding them etc…
If you are somehow not familiar with Tetris, HERE is the wikipedia entry on it.
I was only able to spend a couple of hours this weekend working on the shop, mostly due to other around the house obligations, but I did spend about 2 or 3 hours playing “Tetris” by moving pretty much all the junk that was on the “other” side of the shop from the one worked. I now have all the dust collection ducting staged in one area waiting to be installed. I also have the lawn & garden stuff, about 90% on, around, and in the lawn and garden rack.
I have managed to get the painting and drywall supplies stashed under my workbench. Not an ideal situation, but it is what it is, and not a lot I can do about it for now. Just live with it. They will leave eventually once the painting is all done anyway.
And I discovered when casually looking at gaps by the drawers, I have a cabinet, the big one, the miter saw cab, that is quite not square. Sad thing is it was square when I glued and screwed it together. Oh well… I had design problems with it anyway… Time to build another one!
I am also finding the french cleat that is holding the library cabinet is under, well a bit too much stress. I am going to add a second cleat to both it and the wall to help support the weight. Either that, or mount the cab itself directly to the wall studs… Yeah, not gonna happen… Cleat #2 here I come! Ugh…
