« Part 20: ShopQuest 2014- Wood Rack Part 21 of Workshop series Part 22: ShopQuest 2014- Lathe Set UP!! »

January 5th

January 12th

So a portion of that wood went into 2 of the 3 office projects that I recently posted. another portion has been sorted out and put in hopefully better more organized spaces.

This pic shows wood that literally came with my house. Which means it has been in the rafter for a minimum of 10 years.

I pulled all the trim pieces down from around the vent and found 4 pieces of oak that will make a nice picture frame. The rest was pretty much trash. I then used that space to stow some of my really long dowels and some longer trim pieces that I had. The clamp you see in this pic was from my Grandfather still works fine but a bit old and I did not want to chance is staining anything. I used it up there to secure some longer pieces of trim.

My shorter dowels and some of my other short boards all got a new home as well.

I built this box years ago as a scrap box and boy was it filled with scraps. overflowing out of the top. So I decided to make it a bit more useful again. Now the only reason it is a scrap box is because that’s what it is made out of.

I still have my large lathe up for sale but decided to get it out of the shop. Those little plastic moving pads work great. Just got them underneath and pushed it right out. I forgot how much space was in that corner.

At the moment it is filled with some of my other tools as I continue to work on my lumber rack. I am hopeful I will get some time this week to pull the cart out and continue to empty it. One project that will help is the bench for my new smaller lathe.

Well I suppose that is enough rambling for now. So happy to have that much done. Thanks all for looking and reading.
