Small Projects #29: Insulating the Garage Door

05-04-2020 12:01 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Just insulated the garage door. Cost me $80 for four 4×8×2” foam panels. Very thinly foil skinned on the front side and an equally thin film logo printed back. 3/4 complete, gotz 2 move stuff around to finish. Cut the foil side first, snap, fold, and cut the back film. Use a fresh razor blade or very sharp knife. I cut a partial row off the short side of a sheet. Each 4’ wide piece is cut to length to fill two adjacent spaces in the door. The lengths are cut by placing the facto...

New Shop Build #2: So it begins

04-12-2018 08:48 PM by Bikerdan | 6 comments »

Hey everybody! It’s been a bit since my last post. Things have been going a little slow due to weather and vacations. The last post was just to introduce the project. At that time, nothing had been done except for getting the building permit. Since then, I’ve broken ground!!! The first step is to get the foundation and floor poured. This is one of the only couple of stages that I’m going to stand back and let an expert take care of for me. I need to make sure this ...

I am building a shop!!! I’m so excited to have this experience. I know it might be hard, there will be issues, it will be time consuming, but the rewards are many! I hope to put this experience in a blog format here to document my experience and hopefully help those of you with questions and that might be thinking about taking on their own project like this. In this entry, I just want to introduce myself and give a brief description of my project. I am an amateur wood worker an...

From cluttered garage to organized (hopefully) wood shop!! #6: Clutter cleanout complete... time to ORGANIZE!!!!!

06-10-2016 05:31 AM by PeterDominic1983 | 4 comments »

I have worked really hard these last few days. It is difficult when an injury prevents me from working too hard, or too long, or putting my body through certain motions… but I have finally finished going through just about every crevasse in the entire room! First things first – before the big reveal – I found some pretty cool items that I would like to post pictures of… In one of my previous blogs, right around the beginning of the whole process, I found a reall...

From cluttered garage to organized (hopefully) wood shop!! #5: Journey continues - time to tackle the bench and tool area!!

06-07-2016 02:19 AM by PeterDominic1983 | 2 comments »

This is SUPER slow-going… It is really difficult to see in pictures, for many reasons. Obviously, if someone is viewing the pics, there is only a cursory and “2D” perception of what is really around! But, writing as the person doing all the cleanup? I feel a massive and satisfying sense of accomplishment. And I am not nearly done yet! Finally began removing lots of the items and storage boxes/bins from the garage; I have been staging all the containers ...

From cluttered garage to organized (hopefully) wood shop!! #4: After (and despite) agonizing injury, finally getting back to work!

06-04-2016 06:08 AM by PeterDominic1983 | 0 comments »

Well! It has been almost two weeks since I last updated this blog… I don’t typically slack like this, but I had to put the garage cleaning (and work in general) on hold. So… after a visit to the ER, Xrays, an MRI, and several mind-numbing appointments with orthopedic specialists and a neurosurgeon, it turns out I have degenerative disc disease in my spine (pretty common occurrence) as well as bulging discs in my lumbar region… Most pointedly, my L4/L5 discs between...

05-23-2016 10:45 PM by PeterDominic1983 | 3 comments »

Making progress!! Got tons done today… have several 50 gallon drums full of trash, as well as several contractor bags … accumulating a ridiculous amount of empty cardboard boxes, as well as lots of empty containers, rubber maids, hampers, orange wawa crates, etc… Just wanted to add something cool that I found while cleaning… Came upon this little ‘gem’: Anyway soooo tired. So much stuff… I just want to build things out of wo...

From cluttered garage to organized (hopefully) wood shop!! #2: Progress!

05-23-2016 03:02 PM by PeterDominic1983 | 0 comments »

So got these fancy new 4’ LED lights to replace the ancient 8’ tube/ballast lights… theyre SUPER bright, so for now theyre upside down! Thinking I might make a plexi diffuser or something in the future… Anyway, starting to get things cleaned up a bit. Throwing away TONS of stuff.. there is really only a few categories of items: keepers (to keep in garage, or some other area of the house), sell/donate (ebay, craigslist, verage, something like that), and trash! A...
