Sino bang hindi may gusto ng wall tool cabinet tulad nito: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHZWRxHnluw . Yung ganun na may goldenrod sa loob should solve humidity problems i.e. rust.

Pero habang wala pa, di kahit simple lang muna. Basta may modicum of being organized. I surrender; kahit tool wall na muna. So am slowly populating it. Naubusan nako ng magnets (yung galing hard drive.) WIP/ Work In Progress nga muna siya. 2' X 6' dimension niya.

Thanks doc, especially sa paalala. Pumupunta na nga ako sa shop ng madalas, doing what needs to be done.

My concern really now is shop organization; the tools and wood. Imagine the pic in my post- 6 feet and a few inches is all i have in shop width. It gets easily cramped in there. Just a bit of a mess and nagpa-patong patong ka-agad clutter. Maybe i'll move the heavy machines (drill press, bandsaw) outside. #shopspaceissues.

Kapag maliit ang work space kailangan jan maraming patungan(racks/shelves) at sabitan..ako bawat heavy machines ko may cart at sa bawat cart may cabinet para dun ko na rin dadamputin lahat ng kailangan ko..everything on wheels para mag re shuffle ka man madali lang mag move from place to another..

Accomplishments of the evening:
Lumber rack. Maayos na, naka lag bolts and shield na.
Image

And router sled. Masyadong mabigat yung bosch. Duda ko baka mag-sag sa sled. The 1/4" keeps stealing the work that should be done by the 1/2 incher. Did some test cuts on the workbench top and it was slow going with the 5/16" bit.



Image

The floor of the sled is white because it's a thin aluminum composite panel. Making do with materials i got here. One of these days bili ako ng synthetic flooring, maganda sigurong pang gawa ng jigs yun.

The sled rides on the grey angular bar. I leveled it with a kapro level. Basically, i followed this guy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-2W7SQhrfA

Workbench flattening with the router sled is done. ROS sanding nalang like the guy i saw in youtube. You have to do it yourself to feel the enjoyment of using a powerful router. A few notes:

#Climb cutting is scary, the router would travel on the sled by itself (self-feed.)

#Waxing the sole of the router and sled made a BIG difference.

#I'll be spending half the time cleaning the workshop tonight with the chips all over.

#EZCUT > Powercraft in router bits. And that in flattening duties, router bits 1" in diameter and bigger is the way to go.

#Note in the pic that i have steel stiffeners on top, on both ends. It made a marked difference in the rigidity of the whole structure. It is also works as a stop so my router just routs the WB top. I totally recommend to everyone this mod.

If you have a garden, you now have mulch for a year!
I'd rather add life to my years than years to my life.
