Please plan on the 5th Annual Christmas Ornament Woodturning Challenge coming up in November.
With my new shop area, I need to get organized and stow away both shop and household items that are currently taking floor space. After researching above door commercial storage units, I decided to make the shelves myself from lumber.
Strength comes from:
- Mounting on the wall above the garage doors.
- Mounting on the side walls at each end.
- Posts from the attic about 9 feet on center.
- Torsion box effect from sheathing both top and bottom of the framing.
With the shelf there is about 20 inches of storage height – enough for most bins and boxes that would be light enough for me to lift on the shelf. The shelf is 32 inches deep and about 38 feet long. 220 volt electrical service runs to the center with 110 service to both ends.
Cost is about $250 including electric wiring.
One essential tool is my Paslode power nailer. It is cordless and hoseless running on a battery and a fuel cell.
BTW, with a project of this sort, there are no re-takes. No chance to re-shoot a segment. With space so tight and dark, photography and sound was very difficult.
Back to woodturning next week.
