I am always proud to be a woodworker / handy guy, but sometimes it is really a blessing. Recently for work I had to install a patient management system in a laser suite. The company did not provide and method of housing the system, “just put it on the floor” in my eyes was not going to work. So the customer looked around, as did I and we could not find a compact solution for this problem.

Thanks when the woodworker kicked in and with a $30 investment in MDF 5/8, and some Krylon Grey primer paint combo and some Texas summer heat the solution was born. Built it in a morning, painted in the evening and my customer is very happy with the solution.

I love being a woodworker. Even if its MDF.

Necessity is the mother of invention it is said. Nice concept and well done. Looks like it belongs as it is.

Well done and a quick turn around!!!

It would take me a week to design….
A day to procure materials….
A day to “pre”- clean the shop….
A week to make appropriate jigs….
A day for layout….
Two days to cut materials….
ANOTHER day to re-procure materials….
You get the idea….

As Red Green would say: “If women don’t find you handsome, they can sure find you handy.”
Unfortunately…. They find me neither!!!

Randy , Sounds like you and me work at the same speed and style. I over think it and then rethink it and then go back to the beginning and do it all over again. So a Project could take all year to get done. Project # 1 is an actual Shop to do Projects in. Some Day .

Have your say...
