You have just finished trimming and rubbing thirty dollars worth of brisket. You wrap that baby up and slide it into the fridge to mellow overnight. You then head off to bed and sleep peacefully, dreaming of that mouth-watering chunk of heaven. Morning comes, and after looking over the newest Harbor Freight catalog while drinking a cup of coffee, you decide to get started on the fire. Without warning, panic strikes. Should I use all wood, or should I use charcoal too? How much wood? How much charcoal? You are now adrift on the sea of indecision.
How to build a cheap shed in this economy is a question that I get quite often these days. And cheap shed plans are, of course, the simple answer here. The DIY method can save you both time and money. Even though the nay sayers will tell you that building a shed is not a project for the average gal or guy, with a great set of cheap she plans it can be much simpler than assumed by said group of nay sayers.
Router: 1 1/2 to 2 HP find a good used one, unless it's been dropped and kicked around a lot a good router lasts a long time, two things to look for first brushes that can still be bought and easily changed and two both a 1/4 and 1/2 inch Collete. a router that uses only a 1/4 Collete is of very limited use. if you can a new router of good quality can be bought for $100.00 and you really don't need a plunge router ( but they are nice ).
Now then, the other day I was paging through a tool catalog for Harbor Freight and Salvage and there were a number of generator and pressure washers available. Some of which were from China, and I have nothing against quality equipment from whatever country it comes from, but there is a big difference in quality, and a big difference in cost. Further there is a large gap between the number of decimals some of this equipment puts out, and it does matter, especially if you are detailing cars in a parking lot nearby offices.
Any kind of art can get messy. You will want to create a dedicated work space for yourself where it doesn't matter if you get colors on something. You will need ventilation so that you do not inhale any dust. You can achieve this by working outdoors. If this is not possible, choose a space with an open wall like a garage, or work in front of an open window with fans to blow the air away from you. It's possible to buy or build a spray booth to isolate any over spray and remove it.
While this is a bench designed for light to moderate loads, you might consider replacing the worksurface's fiberboards with lengths of 1½ X4 inch lumber, suitably drilled holes for the plastic dogging clamp inserts. If you are comfortable with a power planer or router, make a suitable undercut to clear the hand cranks and use 1 ½ X 6 inch planks for the work surfaces. That will give you a wider working surface when the two panels are cranked to the max.
