    This slab was about 350 mm longer that the one on the other bench so I had to shorten it a bit at one end because it is quite close to the metal work lathe and I have to be able to get around the back of the lathe.

    It's not exactly cabinet grade work - it's really just smoothed off with a belt sander, holes filled with epoxy, and surface protected against the odd water splash from the sink. It sounds heretical but the second bench will be use to fix chainsaws.
    I guess that the plinths are only temporary until the new ones are finished?

    BTW whats the gizmo inside the space between the left cabinet and downpipe? Looks like a model for a classy dish rack

    Nah - they can stay like that - they are gonna get the stuffing knocked out of them anyway.

    It is a dish rack - when I clean Chain saw parts it comes in handy!

    Default More shelves.

    I wanted some shelving above my metal work lathe to store lathe tools etc and being the metal working end of the shed I wanted to avoid using as much timber as possible so here is what I came up with.
    Shelvesmetal.jpg

    The shelves basically hang from a 38/76 mm RHS which is supported by the roof trusses.

    The botttom shelf and the RHS half of the middle shelf are made of 3/4" SS mesh. This means crap (and itty bitty stuff ) falls thru the holes but you will see below why I have done this.

    The other half of the middle and top shelves are jarrah floor boards rescued from a building site skip (yes with permission), they had some glue on them but my belt sander took about 10 minutes to tidy that up.

    Here they are partially loaded up. The top shelf will be mainly used for Chainsaw chain and spare parts.

    Instant Lathe tooling storage.

    The small wooden collars are to stop the MT2 centres falling through the mesh
    The bike drinks holder holds the oil can really noicely and includes a place for the spout to rest.

    Actually I have about a dozen holders in a box somewhere as they are one of the first things I strip off a bike when I pick up one up from the kerbside hard rubbish pick up.

    I haven't got my DC set up yet so I'm just running in off some temporary ducting. But it's too noisy to use continuously in the evening so I just let the saw dust pile up and then turn it on for a minut eor two while I clean up but this evening I just walked away from it.

    Yeah - spent most of yesterday turning that Sheoak bowl as a gift for some overseas visitors.

    Today I spent most of the day jacking up one corner of the old shed that had slumped 120 mm in 35 years. It went easily enough, One acrow prop and one car jack did it easy. Then I made up some 3" diam pipe spacers that sit on top of the old shed posts. The piece in the corner was 120 mm long and the other was half that or 60 mm long. These are already bolted to the purlins, tomorrow I will weld the pieces onto the original posts - they won't be going nowhere in a hurry.

    It's dirty all round - Spent most of today making this truss that joins the two sheds together.

    There is now a fine layer of welding smog and metal dust all over the inside of the shed.

    I also put up some temporary pegboard - I want to put more shelves up in that spot but the pegboard will be handy for a while.

    That's looking like a shed alright.

    Two things you've got in there I'm looking to get:

    a amp/tuner/ speaker set up; and
    compressor.
    I make things, I just take a long time.
