For those of you in New England, you know what a beast of a winter this has been. It seems like whenever we get rid of the snow, another round comes through and dumps all over us. That said, I’ve been looking forward to the warmer weather slowly approaching.
We’re doing some work on the house (new roof, new beam (termites), and a new mudroom). As part of the new mudroom, my wife wants me to do a built-in locker/cubby/storage/bench thing. It will be my first attempt at trim carpentry. Most of the built-in is basically just boxes connected to eachother but she is more interested in the crown moldings and nice trim look to the end result. So I’ll be adding to the shop, starting with a nail gun/compressor and a miter saw!
I left the shop before winter by adding some french cleats on 4 of the 5 wall areas. I built custom tool holders for some tools to get rid of the scraps laying around. It also gave me a chance to use the new 17” grizzly bandsaw (that thing is a beast). Here are some shots of the work I did:
So once the cold weather breaks, I’m going to be heading back to the shop to start building some cabinets and shelves, then once all that work is complete, I’ll start to trim it out in place in my new mudroom.
