I had promised my friend, Marcello, that I would make him a storage box for all the shoes they had running down both sides of the basement stairs. He did not want to spend much on it so I used sheets of OSB with dados , glue, nails and screws to construct it. It has 6 hangers on top that are screwed to the floor joists. We put it up this morning and I had my camera so I added these shot of it filled. They have outgrown it already!!!

It is 10 1/2” x 18” x 52” . The hangers have 2” drop spacers to keep it down from the joists to clear the water pipe. It went up very easily with help on both ends holding it while I screwed it to the joists.

I am guessing it can get a bit cold there, right. Nice job.

While Jim is sleeping he is cranking things out like you wouldn’t believe. The man is amazing. I have spent some time with him and every time I turned around he had something else done. ‘

My mind solves all my design problems while I sleep. I wake up with the answer and hurry to write it down. That is how I got the idea for the hangers that are also 2” spacers. It sure is not what I drew up the first time- boy what a lot of work that would have been!
I’m making up for lost time to have my knee replaced. I lost 2 weeks with that!
Thanks for all the nice comments. I like to share all my project with everyone. I also learn tips from all of you that I use at one time or another. This is sure a great site!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At the rate that you’re going Jim I think you had better pre-order another knee joint, which will be ready for immediate fitting!

Chuck, this is the project that had all the glue joints drying so I went out on the lathe for while and finished the other two little turnings.

G’day, Harry! I just testing this knee to see if it will be good enough to ski on next year. So many projects and so little time. I don’t hardly post ‘em all…...........Jim
