As seen on the cover of BH&G Wood magazine. Just to let everyone know I can not take credit for the design, etc.
When I saw this it fit my criteria of keeping it simple, using easily sourced/common materials and low cost. This will be phase #1 of helping to get my shop more organized so I will be able to make sawdust more efficiently. On my homepage I mentioned that shop pictures may be coming by the end of the year. Hopefully this workcenter will be enough of an improvement that I will not only submit pictures of the completed project, but the rest of the shop with thoughts on future improvements.
Today I bought material for the uprights. It has been stickered and weighted with cement blocks in my shop space, which has a dehumidifier set at 55. The author said he allowed 6 weeks for the lumber to acclimate, but I may try 3 to 4 weeks. If I add more material sometime in the next 2 to 3 weeks, it will have time to give up some moisture while I am using the first stash to begin building the uprights. There then will be a process in motion that I can pace according to my rate of progress. There are some who could pretty much bang out the whole project in a weekend, but for whatever reason I am most comfortable when I can break up my day with a variety of activities.
