The Battle continues! As Jim Jakosh says – “Use That Air Space.”
I have a cheapo rolling tool chest that is serving me well. There are only so many things I can stack on top of it. It looked like air space to me.
I used two new 2X4’s, Some reclaimed 2X4 offcuts, A reclaimed bit of flooring, and some reclaimed screws. I kept looking at the space and wondering how I could maximize storage. I wanted a good spot for my arsenal and I was really thinking of building a bunch of slots. Then it came to me – Save an entire shelf and hang the implements of destruction. I actually gained back 4 inches on the top side, at least one 2X4 of wood and a hunk of plywood. I bought about $10.00 worth of hooks and I know I could have bought them a bit more cheaply but, I didn’t want to wait for Harbor Freight to open tomorrow. All the hooks are anchored to a split 2X4. When I placed the first hook, I tested to see If my largest gun would fit.
So far, I have gained a few feet of space which is nice. What’s really cool is my space utilization in that area is organized and maintainable. I’m happy for now. Inch by inch – The war will be won (now that all my guns are accessible.)
-- Thanks for all the lessons!
