Default The next phase (plus a couple old one's)

Having been gone for the last near two weeks I have gotten the creative juices going again. I am excited about starting tomorrow to move things out of the garage and getting space to begin work on dust control, wood storage and jeep storage. I am starting a new thread dedicated to four main goals:

1. Dust control station located om garage down stairs.
2. Wood storage in garage and main shop area.
3. Make garage usable to park my Jeep inside.
4. Down stairs bath completed. (how many times has that been said) We just need it.
5. Duct work in main shop, adding to it as money permits.

Well this is what I will aim at doing by summer next year. I will take pictures to show progress and document things best I can (yes BJ the goal will be for "in focus shots).

I can see that you are going to keep yourself busy over the winter.

From where you are in the US, which season is best for working in the shop?

This is where we begin, all the attached pics are to remind me where I started after all "when you are up to your butt in alligators it, it's hard to remember that your first objective was to drain the swamp".

Seems what I wanted to do to collect saw dust with the cyclone will not work, so I have ordered a 30 gal. drum and won't get that till late next week. This does not put anything on hold it just means I'll have to work in some other area, and believe me there are some other areas that need the work.

BJ I know some are just a little out of focus, but what can I say, when I went through these they did not seem that out of focus. I guess I'll try the other camera and use manual focus. Aside from that what can I say???!!!

Yea Jerry.. It could be that your camera's auto-focus is on the fritz or..

you may have switched it to manual focus one time and forgot to switch it back???

Don't ask me how I know about this... <g>

Check out that new high-tech cordless router.. wireless and no recharging required!!

OK I think I have the focus thing out of the way except for a couple pics that I kinda need for keeping track of progress. The first few are out of focus, however they do show what needs to be done and the progress to that end.

Well so it will begin
Pic 1-3. That is where I start
Pic 4. When completed this is where the two dust collectors and the cyclonic unit will be located. Yes I know that the Dust Deputy does not belong on top of the new pleated filter!!
Pic 5. This is where the shelving for wood will be built.
Pic 6. The last out of focus shot for your viewing pleasure.
Pics 7-10 At last we can see what we are looking at.

I will begin with the racks for wood hopefully this next week and will explain the build as I go. (mainly because I don't know myself at this point.)
BTW the focus problem is with the other camera. Not sure what the problem is.

Hi Jerry,

I sure wish I had your space, but not your agenda, looks like you got your work cut out for you. From the looks of things over there, I think it is safe to say that you have become a wood collector of sorts

It wears me out just looking at what all you have planned, it will be nice when it all comes together though.

What with the bread box completed, and the next stools not needing too be done till end of January, I continue with where I left off a few weeks ago with wood storage and DC in the down garage.

It is 5:09 AM and I have been working for the past 3 hours, strange, not for me, I like these early hours, fewer distractions it is when I can get the most done.

My last post 12/04 is where I will pick up. Yesterday I fabricated four vertical risers to hold the shelves brackets, in this case 2x4's 14"to 18" set every foot giving 8.5"to stack the wood. These shelf brackets are adjustable every foot. The construction is 2x4 sections spaced ever foot and held in place by the continues 1x4, (first two photos ) all this is glued and screwed to a 2x6 running floor to above ceiling ( wall construction here is concrete). At the top they are held by a bracket from the top to a truss (last photo), at the bottom I have attached a 2x10x12 and will shoot it to the floor using my "Ramset" I picked up off Craig's list for 40.00 (used on one job, and sells at HD for 200.00). ( will be posting that later today), I don't do that till Honey is up if you know what I mean.

It was 5:38 that I last posted and took up the project with fervor. I finished fabricating the top supports, cut the shelf supports to size, 24", 18" and 12" (finished size). Next using the 24" and starting from the top began loading it up. I had not really planned what would go where, a small point I will regret later I am sure but for now, the pictures can tell the story, besides I'm too tired to tell it.

BTW the last picture was taken at 11:20 this morning six hours later.

Well I will have to tell part of the story, Pic 2 all the shelves have a 5d slant to them. The cabinet in pic 6 will be moved to the up garage making room to move all the sheet rock and plywood to the end standing on end making even more room to get in and out, for now don't dress up until the jeep is backed out!! Actually I'm not sure I will get back in!!, that is no laughing matter!!

Well that has been my morning, how was yours??
