Default today i made some sawdust!

recently moved into a new house with a big (well 3m x 4.5m so big for me) shed in the garden so it would be rude not to indulge a lifelong fantasy of having my own workshop. so i gathered up some floorboards/scaffold planks/random scrap timber and made this. now i just gotta cut a bigger door in one wall and haddocks motorcycle emporium will be in business!

Oh and check out the jedi laser jigsaw i bought to do it with!

First thing I made for my new shed was a feck-off great workbench.
Very satisfying

yup but not as satisfying as sorting all my tools out of old shitty cantilever boxes and putting em into a proper tool chest. no more emptying tools everywhere to find one spanner!

Now see sawdust I can relate to. I can make great piles of sawdust. Wood is easy to work with doesnt have moving bits or that magic smoke inside so breaking it is nigh on impossible.

Love the tool box thing as well its just the why the fuck do I have sockets and spanners am bloody hopeless wi the damn things....

I've been waiting a month to get clearance to 'recycle' a tool trolley from work, it's a bit battered but what the hell, better than paying 60 or 70 quid for a new one that I'll probably batter anyway.....

well the tool box in the photo got dented in transit so the guy sent it back as the drawers wouldnt open as the lock caught on the bent in case and wouldnt turn. i got it cheap and one well aimed whack with a hammer and screwdriver and its working like new.

the tool box still cost 300 (1/2 price!!!) but the quality of the bearings in the drawers etc mean ill NEVER need to buy another one.

i certainly hope so. i've heard stories about the cheap boxes like if you overload the drawers the runners break. i just got summat the same spec as the old mans cos he's had his for years and it's not dropped to bits yet. plus you can buy spare drawer runners ect. im a bit of a tart when it comes to tools cos i work with tools for a living so know that cheap tools are a false economy if you plan to use them a lot. facom and snap-on are just fashion accessories but get decent draper or bahco etc and they last forever.

My problem is I'm an untidy bugger, and every so often I go mad and have tidy up! Then I can't find anything so it ends up in a mess but I find everything! Then I get fed up with the mess, tidy up, and loose everthing again!
