Can’t have too much storage space – Rick Dennington has just posted a thread on storage for WS related reading material.

Be sure to post your photos when it’s all finished and loaded up if you can.

Good luck

+1 for what David (bluekingfisher) just posted on the pics. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.. Any storage, especially for books, magazines, plans, etc. will be a great help…keeps things up and out of the way and originized….thanks for posting on my thread….just trying to give ideas for such things….I posted a pic also of a cabinet that I built years ago just for that…...Glad I did…

Will do. I am actually planning on moving the bench out (after I clean the junk off of it) so I can get to the wall easier. I have some spot / hole filling to do, then prime / paint the wall before the cab can go up…

I am actually quite anxious. I am doing this a piece at a time, not the most efficient way to get things done, but with my time and budget constraints, this is about the only way I can get things done… And while I do fuss about budget, I must admit, I am blessed, very blessed. I am keenly aware that by American Standards, I am not wealthy, but by global standards I am filthy rich. So even when I feel like I am going too slow, I just have to remember that this woodworking hobby of mine is a luxury. There are folks around the world that do woodworking with nothing more than a makeshift carving knife…

Sorry, I digress… I recently came face to face with what a large chunk of the global population deals with, and it’s not pretty…

Glad the project is essentially done. I had essentially no internet on board the cruise ship. Will not get much internet time till next weekend…...still in transit, now in Orlando.

.......and no question….we are pretty well off compared to much of the world….............

Made another major step today. Got the bench cleaned up, and moved away from the wall, and the box of wallboard mud came out of hiding and I cleaned the wall down, and filled the many various anchor holes… Once that dries, time to sand, prime and paint… Man this takes a long time!
