This was a quick project I did yesterday out of necessity. It is a couple of shelves in the freezer room made to hold my radius templates from 16” to 120”.
They are 5” & 7” wide x 49” long and made from maple plywood and painted with some ceiling paint I had in the shop. I think 2 screws would have held them up but there are 10 total.
The last shot is the loose templates I took out of my office.
That’s the project, here’s the story:
I had just covered a frame, that I made for our new church, with black vinyl and was putting the roll of vinyl back in my office. I swung it in and hit the wood chase lounge template and all the radius templates that I had shored precariously on top of the file cabinets for years. It knocked them down on the floor along with boxes of match books I have been collecting for years too. Many other things fell with them…....what a mess!!!! After putting all the small stuff back, I was determined that those radius templates, that I use a lot for projects, were going to find a new home that was close and accessible.
The closest place was the dead space above the freezer in the room across from my office and it was long enough for biggest one. I just measured how much room I had with the freezer top opened and went from there.
Here is how I came to have so many:
One day I had the trammel set up to make some large radii and I had all this nice white cardboard so I went to town making about 40 different large radii so when I need a large radius, I can pretty much find one close enough to use.
I’m glad that is done so I can get back to regular projects!!
