Tom,

It's hard to say enough good about your solution and construction techniques! Running the track above the hedges was inspired, IMHO.

Before I realized health issues would force me indoors, I was going to build on a sloping piece of waste yard overgrown with bush honeysuckle, but instead of clearing it all off, I was going to thread the track around some of it, hoping to achieve a sort of 'instant timber' effect. That all went away.

As for heights, my sooner-to-be built benchwork will be 36" off the floor x 36" wide, i.e. the common width of light steel shelving. Shelves underneath. Altogether less hassle that way. And open framework 1 x4's so I can get a 'below grade' effect.

Paul,

Thank you for letting me know of these shelves. It has been my experience that polymer shelves, drawers, etc then to 'cold flow' over time, and/or become brittle and crack. These of which you speak may be improved.

The thing is, and the reason I settled on steel shelves, is that I have a number of them. You're entirely right about some cheap ones being uselessly fragile. Mine are the heavy-gauge ones meant for industrial or at least, light manufacturing applications.

I will, be assured, go to Wallymart and give them a look.

BTW: How many of you male types are gonna claim I am wrong about my description of the ladies???? Any of you that foolish?










Me.
What I see happening if you did that is, those lovely ladies, being married women ... I can see one filling the mop pail with cold water while two more got you up far enough to stick your head in it.... While a fourth brought a roll of toilet paper from the head... Yeah, Semp, ol' buddy, they've had you on your feet in 30 seconds. Just my take.

Al,

I have the same problem with hearing dialog around, through and over that stupid, blasting noise called music. My son bought me one of those amplifier doodads with about 8 or a dozen speakers--surround sound--that's it. For Christmas. I had him put two of those smaller speakers right behind my head. Now I hear louder mumblings and grunts and blasts of music fit for a Babylonian fertility rite, only louder. Still have only the vaguest idea of the dialog. I've given up watching movies on TV. If I want to see something, I wait 'till it comes out on DVD. Seems clearer.
