Every where I turn lately there are quart cans of paint, stain, clear finishes, etc. I noticed I had a whole 6 inches of space beside the garage door track / opening and the door to the garage. Quart cans are just over four inches deep. Hmmm….
I had drops of 3/4” birch plywood 96” long in various widths less than 12”.
- ripped them to 4 1/2” on TS.
- drew a quick layout to get one 12” tall shelf opening, then three 6” tall openings.
- cut to length with sliding miter saw.
- assembled with TBII and brads.
- thin ripped a poplar 1x drop for three 1/8” strips (Rockler Thin Rip jig and TS).
- mitered the perimeter face and the horizontal shelf pieces (Zona razor saw and aluminum miter box).
- installed them with FastCap 2P-10 and Accelerator (Irwin clamps for just a few minutes each shelf).
- sanded with 150 (by hand with 3M SandBlaster holder).
- filled the brad holes on the sides and top with Timber Mate.
- Painted with Rustoleum Hammered Black (brushed, No primer).
It’s hung and loaded. I think I’ll keep it.
Hey, I had to do something this weekend while I’m waiting for the lathe tools to get here ! ;=)
Thanks for stopping in.
