« Part 1: The start of a challenge Part 2 of The Start of a Challenge series Part 3: updated pictures and status »

hard to believe I started this project 193 days ago and it’s still a pretty rough project. School, and a master bathroom remodel have taken me away…that and I hit a brick wall when the wood is cut to the dimensions required but…somethings causing the case to be 1/2 inch too long, and I’ve got an extra 2 inches inside the case… still not certain how it’s happened, but I’m moving on to get it done…we need this piece sooner rather than later and the weather will soon be way too chilly for me to be out in the garage. As I said, the case is constructed, and I have the front and back case frames on, so now the interior – which originally had two sets of 19×19 shelves in it will now hold one set of 19×19 shelves, then the divider, a 12 inch area to accomodate gaming systems, and what is left will be storage for game controllers, games, etc. Hopefully this part can go without a hitch!

Did you transpose the number(s) when you wrote it down or did you mentally transpose it? That happens to me now and then and I hate it when it happens. It happens especially when I am reading the measuring tape upside down. Better luck next time.

Too much is always better than too little!

My board stretcher quit working, so now I really have to be careful!
