I needed some shelves to store the accumulated junk that collects in a garage so to give some room to still make things.
The storage unit was constructed from CLS 2×3” and 12mm MDF. The CLS is more than adequate in strength and the MDF will provide a nice flat surface for the shelves.
I got the 2 full MDF sheets cut into five pieces each so I ended up with 10 pieces approx 485mm by 1220mm. By placing two piece side by side I will have a unit with five shelves 2.4m long with no waste.
Making a Workbench Part 1 is here, Part 3 here, completed (almost) picture here tools lists here and final finishing here.
I first started by marking up the long sides with four marks to provide a fixing point for the legs and marking four points on the shorted sides – 2 to attach to the sides and 2 to attach to the legs. I marked this up on a template to speed the process up, then piloted drilled and countersunk the holes.
I made a small amplifier for the diddley bow, using a maplin amplifier kit [link], lunch box, speaker, switch, wire, soldering iron and solder. The kit from maplin arrives with good instructions, with a bit of time and after watching a few youtube videos on soldering all is complete and working.
