Dumb, dumb, dumb. If there ever was a hard way, am sure I can find it.
Stared cleaning up the garage, and noted the ski rack was mostly space. Hey, I can take that down, and add dowles doubling the capacity. OK, can do that, but to make room, need to clean out the corner and look at that shelving unit on the floor in the corner. Hey, that shelving unit could be hung up on the short wall, and leave plenty of room for the skis.
Whoops, no shelves, OK, just need to make some. That took about three hours, not bad. Now what about all the rest of the stuff? No cabinet anymore – hey, I can build a few, been wanting to clean up the other side also.
To the store, purchase 5 sheets melamine (I don’t like finishing), and a couple of cabinet ply, a bunch of 2×4 and 2×6’s. Jeepers, getting them out of the truck is hard. Have always just grunted it out, carried the entire sheets to the garage or basement for cutting. Just plum dumb.
Hey, what if I backed the truck part way into the garage and simply slid out the sheets onto the cutting cross beams? Jeepers again, that worked real well, and I did not have to lift anything. Used the Kreg guide to cut the sheets down (some standing up), then transport to basement for final sizing.
Install a zero clearance, new melamine blade, and all the parts are cut to size. Now need to wait for the delivery of the iron on edge (on clearance at grizzly). Got some time, cut the glued up 2×4 to use as skids for the lower cab (mounted on lags for leveling).
The edging should be in this week, final assembly of one floor cabinet (under the shelving unit) and four 24” x 38” cabinets, stacked two high (hey, I have to lift the things). Will think about doors, and now that I know how to unload the truck without hurting myself, may build a few more lower cabs for a workbench, and maybe a couple of uppers…?
Next weekend, am tired now.
I hate finishing, did I say that already?
-- Trying, but lots to learn.....
