« Part 8: New Project: a high chair, and one down; sort of. Part 9 of My 5 projects series Part 10: Progress on the knock down bench, pallet crafting the whole thing. Some nice legs. »

Managed to make it into the shop for two short periods today with some satisfactory results.

The sides of my clamp cart are now glued to the base, some front and back supports at the bottom will still have to be added and a top was glued on as well. After thinking on it tonight I’m feeling like dowels may be the best way to go for the cross pieces that the clamps will actually sit on. But, for now, the results.

The dinos I’ve previously mentioned though not one of the five have also made progress with two of them standing on their own four feet, the third will get the rest of its feet tomorrow so that they can be spray painted outside before the temps drop too far.

Finally the clutter has been slowly accumulating over the last several months and it has only recently started to come to my attention.
The worst of it is still there alongside the tablesaw. I never actually walk there or even move over there so while making cuts it has always been easy to just drop the scrap there, also conveniently located for finding scrap to cut up for other purposes. Believe it or not this is after the minor cleanup of this area

However other areas were much more improved, especially in the area of lumber storage.
