    Equipment Storage

    A friend has been interested in using Bamboo under his equipment for a while, with what he feels is a good result.

    After some different thoughts on what he wanted me to build he decided on an all Bamboo rack.
    His thought was to use 1 3/4" Bamboo tops for kitchen islands. He chose a fairly simple design that bolts together with 3/8" threaded rod through the 3 1/2" square legs. It currently had 1/4" H legs on the bottom and I'm not sure what he is going to use on the actual floor.

    Only issue about working with the Bamboo is it's heavier than I would ever thought.

    The unit is 24" H x 54" W x 18 3/4" D and weighs a bit over 180 lbs. That made for 2 evenings of mass Ibuprofen and adult beverage. I deliver it to him tomorrow with the assistance of my much younger nephew.

    Re: Equipment Storage

    Thanks all.
    I spend most of my shop time building things for friends and family.

    This is a sliding door built for the delivery assistant nephew to keep his 18 month old out of his home office.

    You only get a sense of the size when comparing it to the refrigerator.

    That's really badass, both the shop and your builds. I took wood shop back in school and I was not very good at it. Our shop teacher used to tell us all the time that power tools were not dangerous at all....as long as you don't stick your hand in there.
