Wow - you've done well there crissdee! Interesting choice of fence panels for the walls - why was that?

Purely financial motivation I can assure you. Quite apart from the time and labour it would have taken me to make up something similar in raw wood, it would have easily doubled the overall cost of the enterprise.

I'm guessing that if you lined them with Tyvek they'd be pretty weatherproof.

As you can see, it's in a fairly sheltered spot anyway, but I may line it later. I have sealed every seam I could reach with silicon, but the corner behind the bin in the first picture is a little "gappy". I am going to get some expanding foam for the back edge of the roof, so some judicious application elsewhere might be useful.

My school district has furnished us all with new MacBooks, pretty stupid if you ask me as the kids all have Chromebooks and either we should have gone with those or a cheaper win based laptop. Anyway the old (in my case never used) macbooks were offered to members of staff for $150 a pop. I forked over the greenbacks because I knew I could do this to it.

You wouldn't want some of them Jenny, and we were limited to one per teacher. All of the ones worth buying went very quickly, the other ones were literally better off used as doorstops.

Wow - now that is organized! We have a large two-car garage in which there is no room for the cars because Woodsman's stuff is scattered all over it, and he struggles to find stuff.

That is but the beginning! There are two more at least to be made (just backboards this time, the cupboard was a cut down previously-made chest), one for pliers/mole grips and adjustable spanners, and another for screwdrivers. There may possibly be a fourth for hammers.

More organisation to (unintentionally, and without malice) torment Woodsman.


Pliers, mole grips, adjustable spanners etc...

Gripping moles with such implements might be considered cruel.

I showed your pictures to Woodsman, Crissdee, and he is now protesting that his stuff is somehow different and less organizable. Pah! Methinks he doth protest too much.

And today on OCD Workshop;



A screwdriver rack for the right side is being designed in my head as I type....

Screwdriver rack as mentioned above



And yet more organisation;





Somewhere up there, my dad is smiling. He always wanted something like this, but never quite managed it. He would be happy to know both his sons have got it, my brother to a somewhat lesser extent than me.
