Since we put the woodshop in at the Farm, I have been getting a lot of request from the staff members for different items they want built. In the picture is the first of many that are on the list. These are very simple in design and went together rather quickly. They are made of white pine with a shellac sealcoat and a water based General Finishes top coat.

My – What a big shop you have Grandpa…..
Nicely done.
And, just how many things you build, do you get to keep?

Thanks for noticing the shop Rod, when I get it completed I am going to have to put something on LJ’s about it. What I build at the farm is for the farm. The shop there has been my dream for the last 6 years and I am happy and proud to be the one building and running it. I am what you would call semi-retired and feel like I go to heaven each day I spend on the farm working in the shop.

Snowdog, my only problem is I can’t be in the shop 24 hours.

Nice shop…couldn’t help but notice the jointer…what brand and size is it ?

The shelving units look great !
Is there any support other than the three screws visible per side ?
What type of screws did you use ?
Thanks

Dusty, that is a Grizzly 8inch jointer. Haven’t used it a lot yet but I am very happy with it. Also if you look past the jointer in the picture is a 19 inch Grizzly Bandsaw, now that is a beast, love it.
As far as the shelving support, I should have taken a photo of the back. Yes there is more support other then the screws that you see. There is bracing on the back of each shelf and additional screws that hold the shelf.
Course thread 1 1/4 ” dry wall screws on the sides with 2 1/2” in the back. Believe me those shelves aren’t going anywhere.

Thanks for the info on the jointer and bandsaw : )

Although I’ve used drywall screws on numerous projects , they don’t offer any resistance to “shearing” as I found out the hard way. That is why I was concerned about additional bracing on your project : )
They probably won’t shear seeing that you’re using them in Pine. Keep up the good work !

Simple as it is, very nice design element.
