    Those little hammer marks are there on purpose - I did not make a mistake

        The wood Boxes are called Apple Boxes in the Film/TV/Print world since back in the day they actually used real Apple Crates for whatever they needed; Step, small platform etc. Hollywood was surrounded by Orchards.

        ya got yer Full, 1/2, 1/4 and Pan Cake Apple box. Couple Milk Crates for Ac Cords.

          Ladder goes up top and you can see what the dividers are for- holds 4x8 sheets of Foamcore, Plywood or Plexi.

              Come on FusionKing,
              You could do that with one arm tied behind your back.

              Great work Ed.

                  Very Nice Work. I particularly like the extra hammer marks you "purposely" placed on the steel!

                    Ed, this was an excellent post, I can remember years ago, when I first started, building truck and van bodies and racks for specific purposes. Only thing I'd like to add, I generally welded individual chain links, in strategic spots, to make it easier to string bungie cords to hold stuff in. Do them in the right places, it will not interfere with the things that you need to load in.
                    Obviously, I'm just a hack-artist, you shouldn't be listening to anything I say .....

                      When he's done at your place he can head on over here. I think that has to be one of the biggest challenges for a lot of us. Every time I think I think I have a handle on the organization thing something changes and I'm back to mess mode again. Really so now with adding 2 lathes to what I have and having to make room for a Bridgeport too.
