    New Guy in Lee County

    Been piddling around off and on for about 30 years. I'm finally setting up a shop in the basement to get after finishing some of the details around the house. Also slowly relocating tools (power and hand) from my dad's shop over in Sampson County. Looking forward to turning noise into saw dust again. I've poked around the site for a few days. Looks like a good group. Thanks for having me.

    Re: New Guy in Lee County

    Hey Clay, my name is Ward and I just registered too. I think this site will a great resource for someone like me with little word working experience. I hope to learn a lot and get inspired to do more wood working by the members on the site. I am located outside of Hillsborough, NC.

    My most recent projects included a wood top shooting range/ utility table and a .30 .30 ammo box.

    Re: New Guy in Lee County

    As requested, here are some pics of the things the boss has me working on these days. Lucky for me, I can hide mistakes with filler and paint while I get back on my game.

    The pantry shelves are nothing more than some 1x in 2x dados. I discovered a while back that by making shallow, but "right height" shelves, you can actually increase the usable shelf area in a given wall space. At a previous house, I actually doubled the shelf area in a small closet by adding smaller shelves in a "U" around all three walls. There is the added benefit of being able to see everything without having to reach to the back of a deep shelf. When we built the new place, a larger pantry was a requirement. Now that we are empty nest, you can see we have excess capacity. (except when the grand kids are around)



    The area for mops/brooms is nothing more than painted beadboard in a 1x frame. It keeps wet and dirty stuff off the drywall.


    The mud room continues the beadboard theme. The window sill posed a small design challenge, but nothing too drastic.




    The wife added her touch by making the liners for the baskets. Nothing fancy, but it works.
