Wow! This shelf looks a million times better than the old one, and it's stronger too!
With the short shelf done, I repeated all the same processes on the larger shelf. This one didn't fit on my work table, so I started off working on the floor...
At last the long shelf is strong and looks nice!
Both shelves turned out nicely. I couldn't be happier.
This project took me a day to do. I'm almost surprised I didn't do it sooner. The old shelves were always an eyesore.
The next day I was loving my shelves so much I decided to move my tools back onto them. The Shelves now hold all my sanders again, along with my jigsaw, circular saw and nail gun.
The other shelf holds my hand saws (in the box all the way to the left), my reciprocating saw, my angle grinder, multipurpose tool and my fostner bit set, along with some other stuff.
On the sides I made little mounts to hold some of my squeeze clamps.
The bottom shelf holds my levels, markers, pencils, a tape measure, my push sticks and some of my bar and spring clamps.
Now I have even more room for tools, storage and helmets!
And then a few weeks after that I took down my cork boards and made a 4th shelf!
This one is a bit different though. The height of the middle shelf is lower, so it can fit taller stuff, such as my nail gun.
I also used the cork from my cork board and filled in the bottom area.
I also wound up building a shelf specifically for holding most of my bar clamps.
This thing is really handy!
It's hard to see in the picture, but in addition to the shelf holding 27 bar clamps, it also holds my 2 bench dogs, 2 feather boards, my table saw jointing jig, my Microjig, a corner clamp, 2 Kreg clamps, and at the moment 2 helmets.
I'm running out of places to put new shelving, but I probably won't need to since almost all my stuff is stored on theses shelves!
Thanks for reading!
