The Shop #2

It was a crazy busy summer, no time to work on the shop much less create anything it.

Made this storage unit using scrap & pallet wood . Each shelf is from a different type of sheet material.
The 2 end units are 24w x 17d x 56h. The overall length is 15’

I glued & screwed 3/4 × 1″ cleats under each shelf for heavy load protection.
The shelf across the top is 3/4 plywood with a layer of knotty veneer plywood that I retrieved from a pallet. I glued & screwed both sheets together, staggering the joints. Glued a1x6 to the back edge for suport which is bolted to the wall.
I put a clear coat finish on all.
The next step is to cut out a 8′ × 10′ 6" opening in the wall between the shelf units.

It’s always a great feeling to get things organized and stored away. It looks like you made some really big progress towards that. Great work.

Thanks Thorreain, it feels pretty good sitting in the soft chair using the scroll saws.
I’m going to make a new drawer for it one of these days.

Ianwater, I like that idea. More space for more tools. Someone called me a tool junkie. I like collecting tools as well as I like using them.
Thanks Bruce !!!
Thanks Brian, I’ve only been in this shop 2 years. I have casters on most of my stuff . I’ve done a lot of moving around, have been slow to fastening something to one place.

More storage=more space for new tools:)

I have been thinking to redo my shop for a while now. My main problem has been organizing my tools. They are everywhere now.
