Smile The Latest From the She Shed

... Where Estrogen is fluent. LOL (Love that sign!!)

So I keep finding things I want to make, and things we need to make. First, I found a laptop stand on that cursed Pinterest. After searching through numerous sites, I finally found a picture that I could use to make a template. This is my knockoff of what I found. The band saw worked like a charm cutting it. SO glad to have it up and running again!

Second, the headphone stand I found (also on the cursed Pinterest) but this one took a lot more work to get a workable template. This is my knockoff of the one at where I get the feeling the girl got her idea, as well. She drew hers, I got the picture and took the dimensions. Made this for Ken and my WorkTunes headset, since he commandeered them; staking permanent claim to them. Might as well have a stand to go with them... *shrug*

Finally, Ken has his allotted section of the workshop just about done. We made the cordless drill station for him today. As everyone knows, I don't have a table saw, so the cuts were freehand, and sorry to say, not perfect, and I screwed up; I forgot to have Ken set the two outside braces in 7/8", so when we went to put in the last one, needless to say, the space was a bit off. That's when it hit me: Oh sh*t I forgot to set the braces in! Well, Ken decided he wasn't going to go through and remove them all, so we removed the one end, and inset it to the proper width.. He said he'll use it to hang something off the edge.

Oh yeah! Last weekend we finally got my accent wall done. Only been waiting like three years! We went to Menard's when we got our stimulus, and I decided it was time to get my wall done. I bought three different colors of American Plank, two boxes each. It took about 6 1/2 hours (basically because my miter saw was too heavy to move to the deck, so every piece, once measured had to go out to the shed, and be cut. ) I have enough left over to do the super small wall in my hallway, if I take a mind to it. Haven't decided yet.

Good to have things to be doing. Looks like you're keeping busy. The laptop stand looks nice and functional. You have some talent there. It appears you've managed you space very well. Have you considered a contractor saw or maybe a track saw? Wouldn't take a great deal of space and can be stored out of the way.

@sreilly my circular saw is cordless. Don't know if you can use it with a track?
