Next step is the Ekodeck floor on Friday.
Had to give the batery charger a good work out after that.
Cut some rebates to clear screw heads on the frame.
Dust bucket and elcheapo vacuum.
Worked well all in the bucket and none in the vacuum.
Ran out of time and screws.
Need a trip to bunnies tomorrow for some screws and a proper fix for the router table switch.
Thanks for the update @Brad.
Any tips or advice you can share for other community members contemplating a similar project?
At least you got an excuse to go to Bunnings @Brad!
Looking forward to seeing it finished and reading some of your tips.
Got my drill bit and go outside to fit the door braces, they had grown legs and run away! Hour later find them hiding in the old junk shed... Wasn't me she said.
Go to get the screw and plastic caps that were on the top of the step ladder and they have walked too, eventualy found the caps well hidden but still no screws.
Plan B I have the bench to put together.
Frame is not too bad to put together, similar to rack-it without the holding pins.
Peg board looked dagy so it got sprayed black as did the top shelf.
MDF benchtop and bottom shelf were less than average and I had some spare decking so it was time for the beast to come out.
Still have to rebate the edges so the lose fit stays put, still more stable than using the supplied MDF.
Little helper wanted in on the action too.
Thoughts on the bench -
I had low expectations, expected some flex in the frame and it has plenty.
Rated to hold 100kg Charge garden tool batteries and do some potting is as far as I will go.
Frame will unclip easier than it goes together needs a rack-it style saftey pin or bolt to be added, I may go bolt to help keep it stable.
Drawer is shallow, maybe a good thing with a 6mm MDF base with no bracing.
It is cheap and nasty.
Anyway off to bunnies after work (lunch) tomorrow to get some pop rivets to replace lost screws.
