It’s good to be married to a teacher, especially in this instance. I got a call from the LOML while she was at work. The school day care had received some new cabinets to replace some older ones and needed to get rid of the old ones to make room. My wife, always the smarter of the two of us, called me to see if I might be able to use them in the shop. ABSOLUTELY!!
I drove up there only to discover that these cabinets were huge!! They were each 4’ wide and 5 1/2” tall and were on heavy duty casters. They were also 27” deep and had 5 shelves inside. The only drawback was that they each weighed about 350 pounds!! After much lifting tugging and assistance from others I was able to get two of them in the back of my truck. I was hoping to take all three but there was no way they were going to fit.
I will either insert or post another message with a couple of pictures. I will have to take out one of my wall benches in the garage but the increased storage will more than compensate for the bench space I will lose. I pretty much used the one bench for storage anyway so there won’t be any loss of workspace.
I would encourage anyone who needs this type of workspace to get in touch with their local schools and get on the good side of the maintenance person or a teacher. You never know when you might luck into this type of great situation!
