One of a few I will be building. This is pretty cool for tool storage.
This one case occupies a 48 X 42 inch wall space and has a sheet and a half of pegboard storage. With a small shop, finding a use for every nook and cranny- maximizing working space and storage is paramount. Today with any luck I will complete the trim and varathane and maybe get a coat of paint on the pegboard.
I managed to get some bugwood trim around the small side entry door. What a trial.
There is a reason Mike Holmes makes sure everything is square and plumb before he starts. I thought the job would take about a half hour. Several hours later - when I went into the house for a calming cup of tea Jo-Ann mentioned that she was hearing a lot of crashing and banging and sawing and some swearing coming from the shop..
It was twenty below yesterday - time to work on the recalcitrant skid steer. the starter relay appears to be toasted. I will have to see if I can get a new one in town today as we have snow on the way.
I know I have been spending a lot of time blogging about the shop lately. Bear with me. One of these months I should be finished. O.K. I will probably never be finished - as in everything to the last detail. The workshop is a tool that I can use to progress the enterprise, so to speak. Being able to work on machinery and build cabinets for the kitchen reno and the myriad other projects to enhance the homestead - that type of thing. A place to do maintenance is critical to wringing the most bang from our bucks.
Besides, soon it will be time to obsess about gardening.
