Yo whats up everybody last weekend I was waiting for some of the crosses to dry after I stained them and I had some like 2 2×4s that were 8 ft long from the garden tool organizer and I decided to build a weight rack for the free weights in doesn’t show it in the pictures but right now I have a 10 15 and a 20 on each side. I mitered the top and for the first time I used math on a project but I divided the angle I used for the top which is 45 in half and used that angle for the base. The 2×4s on the bottom are 12 in and are centered with the vertical legs. The hardest part of this project was trying to get the cut outs for the free weights to look the same and the dust was a big problem my jig saw doesn’t have dust collection and I ended up having to moved the finishing table to the other side of the garage because of the dust it can really mess up a finish. It took about 4 hours to build this just because I was filming it and anybody who has a video podcast knows that it really slows you down but its not a big deal.

Man I thought when I moved from new york to baltimore it was bad but here its just so humid but hopefully it gets gold down here soon. Oh listen to this I asked a kid in my neighborhood if it ever snows and he said that they closed schools because they thought it was going to snow but it never did In new york we went to school even if there was 4 inches same thing in baltimore
