This is a cleat wall that will have sliding peg fixtures on it. The plan is for this flexible system to primarily hold my tablesaw and router table sleds and jigs.
Sand shellac and wax the cleats.
Final check a few dimensions.
Set up a method to hold the work so that I don't have to.
This took so much longer than it would if I were able to lift things normally.
Well, it is better than the alternative which is to sit around and do nothing . There are two more cleats to mount . . . I wonder if I can get that done by the end of the day!
Due to the delays in getting the new shop up and running I have jigs in several places on the property . . . some I will probably surprise myself with while digging out other materials . The point is that these are a mix of jigs I would keep at the ready and jigs that I probably would not keep on this wall.
However, it gives you the idea of what I am trying to do. This wall is perpendicular to the tablesaw and router table area.
Objects in this model are dimensionally correct (HxWxD and spacing) but not highly detailed. People have expressed concerns about how close the tablesaw looks to the wall behind it. I will re-clarify that there is plenty of room to breakdown a 60" x 60" sheet of BB ply. Long rips in solid material are generally done at the bandsaw or with the track saw.
Here's how you move stuff when you can only pick up a couple of clamps at a time.
I made some progress on the wall behind the bench area this morning. .
The adjacent wall is next. The plan is to hang many of the longer clamps there. I am breaking for lunch because I think I have an alternate plan . . .
Dust collector has its own shed. Where you see the trunk hit the wall at the right side of this pic . . .
Punches through into this shed . . .
And hooks to the DC . . .
The picture is at an odd angle as there is not a lot of room in there. The vertical section above the stabilizer clamp position is true vertical.
There have been many highlights during this project. Also many compromises and work stoppages. For all the many ups and downs, for all the major phases: framing, electrical, insulation, drywall, and paint . . . for some reason, this . . .
