Rack Em' Up

Since Jesse is here for a while, Vern decided to use his help to get his shop into shape. Vern can't do much heavy work right now, so having a couple of extra hands and a strong back is a big help.

Their first order of business was to build a lumber rack. They are basing it on a design found here - Lumber Rack.

They spent a couple of days drywalling and painting and then were ready to start the fun part.

Lincoln helping lay out the lumber for the framework.
(Jackson was sleeping happily inside where it is air conditioned.)

Getting the frame up on the wall.

Vern - organizing some of his shop cabinets.

Mmmm, I love a man that knows how to use a level.

Jesse - wondering what he got himself into.

Cost of materials to build lumber rack - $220

Time to build lumber rack - 1 week

Time to myself while they are in the man cave - Priceless.
