Steve that works really well, I have a similar space that I
under use for my straight edges. I’m off to measure
Again another great project with plenty of smile factor

very good, i like them…and i also want to apply for the cleaning boy job, i will do this for free, i just ask you help me with the gas, im only in alabama, so i figure i can do the cleaning once a 2 times a week, as it takes about 5 days to get there, i know this might feel like an extreme drive, but i do a really good job of cleaning…so what do you think…my mom said i could…:)

well i got all excited cus of bob817 i thought he could clean the high parts and i would do the low, but man he is in the opposite direction , so that might not work…well unless you want it to work, ill gladly go a different rout to get there…and then we could all do a video together, we could do like a keystone cop type of show…oh i have some great ideas, get back to us steve, i can pack now..and im pretty sure bob817 would be ready by the time i get there..if anyone else wants to help clean, we can just get a bus, well steve would have to get the bus, but its all doable…

Nice one, Steve. I really liked the pipe clamp storage. Mine are in a similar holder as your old one. Time to upgrade. Plus yours it better because you can probably double them up in each spot in case you get more clamps. You know what they say about never owning enough cl…. oh never mind.

Hi Steve. I finally joined over here at LumberJocks and posted my first blog entry (still awaiting review and approval at this writing). I have a question about the video. Where do you store the clamps that you used on the plywood at the beginning of the build?
