This is the sight that greeted me last Saturday morning when I opened up the shop. Evidently I’d overloaded my KV Shelf Standards, and all my bowl blanks, and 2×2, 3×3, and 4×4 scrap wood came tumbling down. You can see the KV strips if you look close. One on the left is still there, and the other is bent all up on the right.
At first I was just going to screw the KV standards back up because part of the problem was not using long enough screws. But then I realized that the hooks had bent, and the slots had pulled out of the standards… and it would never hold as much as it used to. And I just don’t want to have to go through this EVER again. So I just threw the KV Standards in the trash and didn’t look back.
So I made these shelf standards that shouldn’t even THINK about budging. Not the most glamorous project I’ve ever done, but it was quite necessary. Took me two days to get it cleaned up, shelf standards built and everything put back up.
I’ve been wanting to get back to my Model T Cars for about 5 weeks, but evidently my shop angel had other plans this past Labor Day weekend.
I supposed it was much better to have it fall when was not there, than when I was under it. These darn things will NOT fall down on me!
