ROCK 2.0: Progress Report 09.03.13

During the evening last night, I moved some plywood up to rest on the newly built peninsula benchwork.  I had declared earlier that I wanted the benchwork height to be around 50-52".

So, last night, I woke up around 3am thinking, no!  This isn't going to work!  I need to lower the benchwork (not much, but a few inches).  The benchwork along the wall was around 48".  That felt more natural and not so overwhelming for my 5'8" stature.

This morning, I lowered all the benchwork to the 48" range (give or take an inch or two across the length of the layout).  Whew!  I feel much better now!

I moved the plywood I brought up yesterday to the Ottawa Yard section, marked and cut out the lumber.  Tomorrow, I will work on the risers for that area as I need to cut a creek through the yard (just past the yard ladder).  Craziness, I know, but that's the way the prototype is/was.

ROCK 2.0: Progress Report Labor Day Weekend

I was busy last week and into Saturday moving our office, but did manage to get a little bit of work completed.

I cut and installed the cross bracing for the peninsula and secured to the main benchwork.  This evening, I wrestled a sheet of plywood upstairs.  I will draw out the track plan and then trim up the board to fit the track plan.
