Hi Fellow Lumberjocks, my name is Jim just became a member, so nice to receive so many welcome messages thanks so much.
I am new to woodworking, to date haven’t made much my doctor told me about year 2000 l needed a hobby.
Diabetic problems mostly the feet Neaurpathy nerv damage not feeling in feet test says but still feel plenty of pain, chronic pain from 1989 cqar accident now on max allowed 1,100 mg morphine a day
So on doctors advice started buying magazines, books, power/hand tools pretty much set up.
I hope in next few years to convince my wife to borrow loan to build outside workshop like a 2 car garage maybe. Now l work in mmy basement good size main shop area 11 1/2 ft wide x 40 ft long and then other side basement is 16×16 where l keep big desk etc.
I have allot of wood to much l think was windering my crawlspace concrete floor off 16×16 room would it be ok to store oak etc there?
I bought 22 sheets laminate about 27 wide by 46 inches long they were displays shelving in zellers only paid
$ 100.00 for them all are laminated both sides a few have cracks.
I am thinking of trying to build cabinets for shop, because presently to many old odd size shelves carts l picked up for free etc have to make look like a shop build lumber racks etc for more floor space.
My basement shop is block wall so have to hang cabinets from ceiling am not sure how to put bolts in block wall with out cracks blocks damaging them?
