    I'm actualy very pleased at how the Rev A Shelf system turned out. Granted, they are not cheap at all, more loved one cookware system, 1 flat bottom system, a tilted forward false front sink panel system, and the closet maid hanging door shelf system, was a little bit over 3 bills. Just one of those things, I think it's going to let us be a lot more organized and in the long run will keep usmore efficient so we can do more with the same amount of time.

    I did another couple of things this weekend.

    I found a guy who buys/sells used office furniture and I got a sweet mis-matched, but still good looking office hutch that stands about 7-feel tall. Then there's a large one-piece red mahogany shelf that I also found. Thing probably weight about 150 lbs so I'm somewhat crazy for buying it, but I will attach it to my wall and let it hang. I was concerned about the structure of the wall, but after doing some reading I determined that this will have the weight spread over 5 studs and each stud will have two connectors, so that's 10-points of contact.

    Anyhow, I also hooked up a new closetmaid organizer by the back doors in the laundry room, that's helping to keep a bunch of stuff out of the reach of the kids as well.

    All these little organization projects are going to leave me without excuse for being messy.

    I'm REALLY sick and tired of this stupid website software doing an auto-rotate on some pictures. It looks right on my phone, it looked right when I uploaded it to my Google Drive, it looked right when I downloaded it to my computer ... but when I uploaded it to the website it auto-rotates. grrrrrrr

    This is a project from a couple weekends ago, which started several weekends ago. I built a table for my chop saw:

    The saw's previously been sitting on the floor of the shop, which is practical in that it's easy to support long boards, but also means I have to crouch to use it and to move it around is a pain due to its size. So, I built the stand. But, I originally built it just deep enough for the saw's table, making it incredibly tippy. So, I doubled the depth, and that's what I have now. I still need to figure out how I'll support long boards, but that shouldn't be too hard.
