Behind the Scenes: My Rolling Workshop
I usually use this blog to show off glamorous photos of my latest job, but today I thought I'd give you a peek behind the scenes.
I've been getting a lot of built-in shelving jobs this year, and although I usually do a lot of prep work in my home workshop, there are often a few last-minute details to take care of onsite. It just makes for a better shelf if I can fit the piece to the space.
With that in mind, I'm always tinkering with the setup in my van, and I recently hit upon an awesome set-up!
When I first got the van, I built a set of custom shelves in an H layout that puts all of my tools right at my fingertips. There's always been space underneath for carrying plywood or painting supplies.
My latest brain wave was to install a drawer under the shelves. First I laid down some simple runners made from leftover pieces of half-round trim. Then I greased them and laid plywood over them. I added some runners above to hold the plywood in place.
My table saw fits there perfectly, and it even doubles as a counter.
When the drawer is pulled out, voila! A rolling workshop.
All of that organization is for you, so your special project is done right.
If you need someone with a rolling closet full of tools to pull up to your door and get your projects done, give us a call. We love this stuff!
