Tom,
now add some pallet racks to keep the floor uncluttered and a forklift - you'll never look back>\

ENJOY !

About 300.

The Skyply is nice.

Someone on FOG ( I’ll check who it was so they get the credit they deserve) recommended Garncia to me, I got a chance to use it before I left home. Impressive stuff.

It happens Paxton has a facility here. They don’t stock the Garnica here so they’re bringing it in from Chicago for me. I guess they get a couple of trucks a week here from Chicago. Denver is one of Paxton’s smaller facilities, it only covers about 4 square blocks..

It was Kodi Crescent who recommended the Garnica plywood to me.

Man Thom, You got a huge work space. Plenty of room to build. Yours makes mine claustrophobic  [big grin]

Haven't posted any pictures of what's been going on.

All the vanities are assembled, main kitchen is done, will finish up the prep kitchen tomorrow.

Knew I couldn't't lift the refrigerator cabinet off the bench myself so.....

If you have to work under anything lifted block it out.

A little bit...

Today is the greatest day in racing. I’m trying to figure out how to watch 14 hours of racing without a TV or cable, yet get 16 hours of work done in the shop. The math is just not working out.

Today will be the first time in 40+ years I miss the Great American Race....a very sad day indeed.

The race is televised on ABC networks.  You could pick up an over-the-air HDTV antenna and TV from BestBuy or Target for under $200 and have it in your shop for future use.

Might have to move closer to the door or window for the antenna but. It should work with a great picture.

Great work as usual.

I’m impressed though. The super shop space came with a forklift? Or have you been making friends?  [big grin]

Thank you.

I’m leasing the fork lift. Between the material orders and the fact I’m to old to lift some of these cabinets the fork lift comes in handy.

The drawer slides, hinges and other cabinet hardware came on a pallet, according to the bill of laden it weighed 1610 pounds.

With friends like me who needs......
