    In which case I will double down on this part of my previous submission.

    I'm prepared to discuss my workbench and assembly table choices if you feel it is any help. But I think you have the jist of that already, Simon. But feel free to ask specific questions and I will try to be helpful. My setup and equipment pretty much allows anywhere on the spectrum between full-on handtools and full-on machine working.

    Topic for this week?

    That's a different sort of chainsaw. Are you attempting to curry favour with Pagie. Or is that the chainsaw that is child safe?

    Maybe I just wanted to get the "C" word out of the way before we start.

    Well,

    In passing I mentioned I had rescued some second grade pine (Bob was kind enough to point out that this may be tautology ) from the rubbish dump at work. So it thought I might take the opportunity to document the new lawn locker. Unfortunately, the lawn locker doesn't really stack up compared to Simon's shed and fitting out and does not really warrant a thread of it's own, so in a rather limp effort to steal some of the glory, here goes.

    First up, the lawn locker which started out life as this cage

    P1060338 (Medium).JPG

    The interior steel and floor steel were gutted and used to create a skillion roof and additional horizontal bracing. The slab is the only concession to sophistication. It is under the plastic: Really.

    P1070736 (Medium).JPG

    It now looks like this, but needs a second coat of paint and then the door and flashing components can be highlighted in black just to tart it up a bit.

    P1080069.jpg

    A neighbour spotted what I was up to and asked if I wanted a window. So the lawn locker has a window.

    P1080068 (Medium).JPG

    So to the rescued timber: Crates primarily. Trailer is 12' x 5' (Matt: that's 3600mm x 1500mm) to give some idea of quantity.

    P1080104 (Medium).JPG

    Lots of nails of course. Probably about three kilos. The only saving grace of the pine is that de-nailing is quite easy.

    P1080105 (Medium).JPG

    I had thought that the boards were the best looking prospects but ironically the long bearers one of the crates sat on were more likely the pick. There were five of these and as it happened that coincided with five studs on the only vacant wall in the LL. I took it as an omen and started building some racking to support my wooden treasures.
    P1080109 (Medium).JPG

    These are some of the components with one frame assembled on the right ( without braces). In amongst the sizes were a mile of 70 x 35 and that formed the rails.

    P1080110 (Medium).JPG

    It is all a bit simple tending to crude but it serves the purpose. I had intended to take some pix of the bare racks (no, not those sort of racks ), but I couldn't locate the camera. As I put the last board in place and climbed into the ute I saw the camera sitting in the console!!

    P1080111 (Medium).JPGP1080115 (Medium) (2).JPGP1080112 (Medium).JPGP1080117 (Medium).JPGP1080119 (Medium).JPG

    The frames had to accommodate my buckets of offcuts beneath so that dictated the height of the first "shelf" and the square frame is for any really heavy timbers: Not that the pine is really heavy.

    Regards
    Paul
