Shelf Building Project, January 29, 2000.

This project was a lot of fun: to build a set of shelves 24 feet wide by 10 feet high by 2 feet deep across the back of our garage. Tom Taylor did the design and led the work. Woody Edvalson provided a van to get the lumber and was the chief worker along with Tom. I followed up by nailing all of the shelves in place, although I did get to use the power saw once...

We started by moving out the cars for several days:

This allowed us to then move everything away from the back wall of the garage before everyone showed up:

Early Saturday morning the team got to work, about 8:00am. Tom brought a cool power saw:

By 3:00pm the basic shelves were done:
