Nice set up Wilbeer! How do you handle fine airborne dust???

I spent part of my morning under a dark cloud. A 250 pound acoustic cloud, anchored to four bolts in the concrete ceiling. I finally got to use up those old 1/4" buttonheads...

That fake stone looks a bit ruff.


Yep. That is about the only remnant from the old dining room wall; for some reason the architect incorporated it.

After three Sturmpanzer IV Bummbars I finally did one right. Construction perfect. Plus I did a new German disc camo from Uschi to depict a 'Bear' from the MAN Works specifically painted in November 1944 for the Ardennes Offensive:

Whenever I get the Panzer commander figure and four grenadiers painted, this one is going in to Fine Scale Modeler magazine for sure.

Nice job, MisterE. I'm contemplating something similar for the bed of my Tundra: side shelves/storage over and around the wheel wells, then a 3 piece carpeted platform with 3 drawers underneath that run full depth of the bed. When I have time. Yeah, right.

I didn't have any screws and metal L brackets to attach my coffee table legs to the shelf, so instead I made this little ditty to use up some glue...

After the joinery, everything was dry fit together without glue to make any final tweaks. Didn't have any.

As I take it apart one last time, I devise a plan for gluing all those joints and putting it together. I decide to run it out, use a glue with a long open time, and glue 'em all at once.

Final sanding, turn off the phone and lock the door, assemble wet rags and a glue brush, then take a precautionary bathroom break. Party on Wayne. Party on Garth. It's glue-up time!

rj: Dammit! I knew I forgot something...

Did another day on the trailer installing final door, found some metal bins to divide up the drawer space at the salvage yard, installed the final door and started blocking & channel to take out plywood bows. Still have to edge-band, bondo-fill, prime and paint...I was thinking fuscia?

And, of course, install the bottle opener...

Been a fun little project!

Beautiful joinery as usual, Edge.

MR.E, That trailer is great ,I could use a flat work space like the top of that,thanks for the inspiration.
Been looking for a Thule trailer about that size to do something similar,dual purpose.

Cannot wait to see how the Edge sets up his truck.Edge ,you would be suprised how much I use a marples chisel and a bakuma.

This Just In, that's beautiful! Walnut burl? Do tell.

I am slowly stealing wood at work. A couple more of these and I can put together a stand up paddle board.

It's just a flesh wound!
