I wasn’t going to call in and see about the shelf racking I saw from the street.. sitting in a front yard.
I did and found out it was for sale for $200 .. ok I’ll be back this afternoon.. got home and thought tomorrow,, saw the neighbor about using his truck.. He said right now .. so I went back.. lucky …someone else wanted it and were coming the following morning,, You may or may not agree with this philosophy but I have found that if you wait for things to happen ,, then they won’t! NIKE is not original.. just do it!





Now I have lots of storage, and more room for timber.

congrats! Great shelving

Larry, this is a nice set of shelves that you acquired. They look to be sturdy and well made and, yes, if you procrastinate you will end up wishing you had taken the plunge. A couple of years back I noticed a 3 year old lathe being offered for sale along with a full set of chisels and gouges for $1800, which was about 1/2 the price of the lathe alone. I pondered about spending the money and the logistics of moving a 900 pound piece of machinery for a couple of days. When I called about it I found that it had been sold the same day that the ad appeared in the paper. Someone recognized a bargain and acted on it.

By the way it did not take you long to fill them up!! :)

Very nice larry, and you didn’t have to build it.

I miss Cooper’s, and of course that’s the thing I’d notice in your pictures! That said, I agree completely that there’s no such thing as too many shelves.

Well done Larry. Act now is a good philosophy. Like Maggie Thatcher said, good fortune most often favors the brave.

I sure could use some nice extra storage like that in my shop.
