Here is chest number 3. It would make a good project for somebody with some time available. :)

[ATTACH]23912[/ATTACH]

It uses 4 stepped end supports to allow 2 sliding trays on each level.

You can see the stepped support at the left end here. It has a locking till (lid sitting straight up) and someone has made it into handsaw storage with those slotted post.

Here you can see where someone carved out the lid to hold 2 squares using turn buttons.

This box would make a more suitable project for many since it is small enough to fit in well in a smaller house/room.
Yes I do love old wooden boxes. :)

Here is another box... My maternal grandfather was a tool maker machinist and this was his first chest when he started back around 1930-ish. He had half a dozen when he retired but this was his only wooden one. Sadly a lot of his tools were stolen after he retired, I have the ones that were not.

I've been making some slow progress in spite of some med side effect problems... Damn Lipitor...
Of course as always I am stretched too thin and going too many directions at once to be really effective. :o
Our son Scott brought home a mid-sized mini-excavator a while back and cut the ramp drive down into the basement entry pit and it all came out very well except that it is constantly raining here this year in the "new Hoosier rain forest". :rolleyes: It's been hard to catch times when it is not muddy. Last week he brought home a tracked skid steer and shaped the big dirt pile into a driveway base with a proper crown but it has been even too muddy to walk across since. No matter, it will probably turn off extra dry this month...
It is all working out well. I decided against a big garage door for now. I don't really want the heat and AC loss. I have an opening a bit over 5' wide but only put in a walk door with a removable section that I can take out easily if I need to move something too big for the walk door. The door is hung and working nicely thank you. I love having that door window. I have a sump pump installed temporarily to ensure that any water collected gets away quickly. If it "EVER" drys a bit I will dig out the perimeter drain line that sits well below the basement floor and then build a concrete trough with a top about 12" wide and 10' long made of some mezzanine flooring I have (open steel grating). That will protect from any sudden storm water coming down the ramp. I will have a double backup. I will properly install the existing sump pump and add a 12 volt backup pump. They are not that expensive and it could save me from a royal mess if a super huge rainfall occurred while we were away, the power went out and autumn leaves covered the grating. As soon as it gets dry enough Scott will bring home a tri-axle dump and haul me some serious stone for the new drive.
I'll try to get some pictures.
I took the wood/coal burning furnace out of the woodshop a couple of days ago and it is surprising just how much space that opens up. We are buying a new furnace this summer that is about 30% bigger in BTU capacity. It will be installed in another part of the basement near the stairs. It will be connected to a new chimney that will exit the basement below ground level and the chimney will sit about 10' away from the house. It should be much safer from possible chimney fires. To keep it from looking a bit funny and for stability its base will also be an outdoor cooking fireplace. The current wood/coal furnace is moving to the farm shop and should serve nicely there.
The existing chimney still in the woodshop is intended to become a fume vent for finishing vapors from a spray booth.
I have one concrete block post in my way right between my main bench and my table saw. There is a wall upstairs above it but it is only a partition wall. I plan to remove the post and it will make a zillion dollar improvement to the shop. The beam it supports is laminated out of about five 2"X10"s. Right now I am planning to add a 2"X10" laminated engineered lumber beam onto each side of the existing beam the full length of the span and bolting them all together all the way through all seven of them about every 2'. That laminated engineered lumber carries a remarkable load carry rating. The span will only be about 19' but I will use 24' lengths in order to cantilever a bit of the weight as well. The cost difference for the extra length is minor.

Now, if I could just get organized... :rolleyes:
I "found" another home for some hobby stuff and activities that I thought was going to have to stay in the woodshop so I am even more excited about how things are working out.

Sounds like you will be busy for a while yet.... yea it only ends when it ends.

"Damn Lipitor..."

Any thing you would like to share about this issue? I take a generic Atorvastatin, it was 20 Mg per day then reduced to 10 with my good test results and the major eating changes I've made. Just wondering what your issue are/were, again only if you want to share here in the forum.

Keeping on keeping on as my older brother says, the only way to go.

After my quad bypass they put me on 20 mg of Lipitor even though my numbers were not all that bad especially my HDL / LDL ratio. Things seemed to be moving along reasonably but after a test apparently someone in my cardiac specialist's office decided that an LDL of 80 was time to panic and the immediately upped the dosage to 80 mg. That is the sort of thing that happens when they get most of their info from salesmen... The maker is on a big drive to get everybody on the planet on the max dosage of 80 mg. They are pretty up front about that. Did I mention that it is the biggest selling drug "ever"? I have always been one of those people that never have any serious side effects from about anything I take. In this case however if a side effect was listed I had it. Especially the muscle pain and loss of muscle control along with a bucket full of other lesser problems. I have never believed in zombies but suddenly I was one... :eek: I had almost shut completely down. My regular doctor was a bit shocked by the sudden increase from 20 mg to 80 mg and so was my pharmacist. When I saw my specialist he also seemed surprised at the sudden increase and maybe a little pissed. He had me stop it altogether for a few weeks and then try 40 mg. That was still a no go. I stopped again and went back then at 20 mg. So far so good. I tried to get it up to 30 mg but that was still pretty bad so for now I take the 20 mg and they also have me taking Zetia The Zetia has not been a problem at all.
The Lipitor works by preventing the liver from making cholesterol. The Zetia works by keeping the intestines from absorbing the dietary cholesterol. Most of what I take at Drs. recommendation are supplements. Fish oil, a generic = to Centrum Silver, Vitamin D3, CO-Q10 and an adult low dose aspirin. I also take Levothyroxine (thyroid) and Metoprolol for blood pressure which holds at about 100 over about 50. I am also a diet controlled diabetic. I used to keep my blood sugar down to about 90 but Lipitor is also good for screwing up your blood sugar. It now hovers between 100 and 108
Here is a Mayo Clinic page about statin side effects:
http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/high-blood-cholesterol/in-depth/statin-side-effects/art-20046013
I want the Lipitor thing to work out as I have read 3 studies that indicate that Lipitor users have about a 20% reduction in chances of developing Alzheimer's than those who do not use it. It seems that my family tree is a fountain of Alzheimer's... One maternal great great grandmother was institutionalized near the end of her life. My maternal grandfather who I was pretty close to didn't know me his last couple of years. My mother went through over 12 years of it before her body finally just shut down. My father and 3 of his sisters all had very bad Alzheimer's including eventual violence in 3 cases. More recently my sister (my only sibling who is 3 years older than I am, I am 73) was diagnosed with it about 3 years ago. With her it seems to be progressing rather fast...
Not trying to scare anyone but do work at keeping your brain working...

Thanks for the update. I take a few of the same things you do. If you were over dosed that would explain your comments. My Dr.'s seem to think keeping thing lower is better and I've not had the experience of anything more then the original dose of 20 mg, and with numbers showing a lot of improvement I hope to be off the stuff all together in Sept. Of course that is my hope and the testing well tell if that can happen.
