While making my sliding garage screen door I got the idea for making use of some scrollsaw patterns I own. Maybe I could decor the door, you know, dress it up a bit. And it starts with router bits, what to use based on what’s available.
As the final stage of building our garage sliding screen door its time to build the two screen frames and install the screen material. This didn’t cost me anything… well, ok, for you purist out there, it did at some point in the past. I had bought material to make the screens for our sunrooom and the scraps left over I did not throw out. So, it didn’t cost me anything EXTRA.
I purchased two of these 5 drawer map cabinets. They are big! Too big for the house, which was the original destination. They are 48 inches wide and 36 inches deep. Two units stacked on top of each other makes a height of 36 inches.
I obtained this bulk lot of 20 map cabinets at a government surplus auction. I was going to keep a few and sell the rest. But, nobody was interested so I am recycling them as storage solutions for the workshop.
This week was eventful because I received two parcels in the mail from recent purchases. Francie B. sent me the box of plans, 58 in total. Among them, 15 of them are new to me so they will go straight into my collection. The rest I will consider their condition and swap them with one’s currently in my collection.
I made this clamp rack for the workshop to store clamps of various types and sizes. I simply made use of scrap wood left over from when our house was built in 2005/2006.
Nothing glorious about this project. 🙂 Its just 5 boards on 4 wheels, used to store short pieces and scrap wood cut offs.
Well, not into the house. That has not even broken ground yet. But we can move the house contents from the moving truck to the garage. Another bright morning. Nice to see a bunny rabbit on the lawn to greet the morning sun.
This morning we spent in town getting some lumber and hardware supplies so we didn’t get back until about lunch time. Our neighbor Hugh showed up again and helped install the single door and the garage door as well as two layers of felt paper on the roof. Then I fell off the roof…
Today is soffit and fascia installation. Other than breaking for lunch and supper, this is pretty much all we did until the sun disappeared behind the lake.
