It’s been a while since I have posted any projects. I really haven’t had any energy for projects now that I am back to work installing fire sprinklers. But I built this box and a print table that sits on a rolling cart. I didn’t think of this as a project really but Ibbuilt it so why mot post it.

I made it out of the pallet wood I stock piled. It’s got 3 compartments for material that help tovhave close at hand for whenever your doing. I happened to be earthquake bracing when I took the picture and it’s full of material. I drilled a couple holes to tie wire the box to the lift and it’s made of thick sturdy wood and fastened together with wood screws. I’ll take picture of my simple print table and post it also.

Black gold huh …. im demolition weve got another name for it … the funk water. That stuff gets on ya and man o man does it never wanna leave.

Speaking of sprinklers, its a demo contractors worst nightmare hitting one of those heads. Well that and the wrong address. Ive only seen one go off and it wasnt by me or my guys, but it sure did a number on a Filene’s finished ceiling on the floor below.

From a Electrician that has spent many a day up on a lift you have brought back memories. We used to build trays that locked into the top rail so we didn’t have to lean over to pick up every single fitting,, especially since you have walked over them all morning on the lift deck. Some guys even built seats on the lower rail. Your tray looks just as overloaded as ours were. Nice job. Don

A sparky would have seat on his lift! :) haha. Thanks Don, I am having to get above a lot of duct and branch conduit so having ito the top rail would take away a good 8” that I need to reach where I have to drill quick bolts. I’m always pressing my lift up against the bottom of something. I swear no matter what you’ll always need least one more inch.

Yeah Chrisstef, it can get messy quick. A while back an electrician busted a head in a hospital while He was pulling wire above a drop circling over finished lab tables and everything. We had already left the job, And at the university of Washington you have to call their facilities guys to get water shut down and you better expect to wait a while for anything to get done. They had a lot of explaining to do!!
