My wife has been asking for quite some time now for a new work table and shelving for glass storage. Well i finally found some time and materials so here it is. The table is 9’ long and 2’ wide made from 2×4 and 1/2’ ply with 1/8th inch hard board recessed flush on top. This is very sturdy. The shelving is made from scraps of ply I salvaged from a job site down the road from the house for the sides and the shelf boards i saved from going into the dumpster at work. The dimentions are 5’ tall 14” deep and 3’5” wide.
She is very happy!

Good job Bryan – what does she do? I see some sort of Blue Machine there – but I don’t have a clue as to what it would do.

Thanks LJs.
cajunpen, She does stained glass work (lamps and sun catchers). the machines that you see are her blue saw (kind of like a wet scroal saw) and her glass grinder. It wont be long and she will have just as many tools as me.
