Shop update #323 (1-17-24)
I installed the last overhead storage rack in the shop this weekend. They are now officially finished!
I picked up a single 8′ 2×4 at Home Depot and cut it down into 4 – 45″ 2×2’s. I also cut a piece of OSB down into 23″x45″ for the shelf.
As I was locating the studs, I found one that was about 47″ down the wall from the last shelf so I cut a spare piece of 2×2 at 48″ and mounted that piece to the wall for the extra support.
The wall support had 4 screws driven into studs and the ceiling support only had 2 so I added a 75 lb wall anchor to each end just to give it a little added strength.
The shop is still messy but it is progressing nicely.
My new table saw is scheduled to be delivered by the freight company today! Here is a little hint…..
