Having just seen The Scotsman-For Larry and his Kilt, I had to add another for Larry.
My best friend from High School up through when our kids were in High School was Bob.
Bob was always kidding me because anything I built was built heck for strong. If a toothpick would do, I used a 2 x 4. On the other hand Bob would undertake a job for a 2 x 4 and use a couple toothpicks instead.
His stuff always turned out great in looks and use. Mine always looked like an amateur cobbled it together.
Anyway, I spent a day dismantling my wood rack because Glenn and I are going to make a new one this week-end. The old rack was 6 ft long and 4 ft high. The photo is the hardware I removed from the old rack. I notice that I did not get one fender washer for each of the bolts in the photo. I also did not get the HF 5 in casters in the photo.
Larry's motto is, "If in doubt, build it stout." I am sure that you can tell from the pile of hardware that I must have been doubtful because I sure built it stout. And it was stout. It lasted for several years while holding over a thousand pounds (one time I estimated 1,400 lbs) overload.
Oh yes, Myrna and I are still laughing at The Scotsman song.
Glenn is going to be here for a few days so communication will probably be minimal. When we get together hilarity, work, visiting, etc. are about on a par with a movie version of a couple inebriated high school girls visiting.
