This week I finished painting the inside of the shop shed:
Not the greatest paint job, but it’s a workshop, not a work of art. Art might come out of the shop, but the color of the walls isn’t likely to affect the quality of the work. The floor is going to be a white vinyl title. That requires a little prep work so I had to put down a plywood underlayment for the tiles to stick too. The floor the shed came with wasn’t suitable for these self sticking titles so I had to lay down this 1/4 inch plywood stuff for the tiles to stick to.
I had to bring out my almost all purpose tool cart for the job:
It’s a thing I made out of recycled plywood from an old bookcase. Most of the time I just use the miter saw that’s buried under a power cord and other junk right now, but it also houses my air tools and compressor.
The compressor is below and being inside the cabinet reduces the noise just a bit.
On the other side are some shelves for air tools and supplies. I really wanted to get the underlayment down today because the weather forecast is showing that our warm weather is coming to an end this weekend and working outside might colder and possibly wetter. With the underlayment in, putting the titles in place can all be down inside and out of the weather and with the help of this thing, warmer too:
The next step is getting out the chalk line and laying out the lines for the title installation. These are the titles I chose.
Yeah, more white. My eyes are getting old and I need all the light I can get and the white helps reflect more light. Once the titles are down, I can start moving tools in and getting to work on other projects.
If you need me, I’ll be in the shed.
