Opened up the quarter deck door and set up the portable sawhorses so I could cut down a 3/x4 plywood panel to make a pair of shelf bottoms for the new bench project. The plywood was part of a concrete form that was used during the pour for the new front mezzanine stairs for my house. Just knocked the form apart once the pour was over and stashed the various bits until needed. The matching panel is actually the top plate for my bench.
Got that done and the tools for it put away. Closed that door and moved down range to the main door and got it open. Set up the portable vise and grabbed a length of angle from the outside pile and harvested a quartet of angle sections from it to use as the basis for fabbing up some corner brackets to keep the hutch in position on the bench top. Made a relief cut in one side of each angle so i could bend them to 90 degrees and discovered that parent material was cast steel and didn't like being persuaded to change shape via the use of a 5# short maul. STuff came from a bed frame that I dismantled so who knew?
Finally, removed the attaching bolts from the security chains that I had put on that freebee rear end that I had scored and replaced them with locks. Added another chain from wheel to wheel and a third lock to secure that to the first chain. May add still one more chain to attach the whole mess to the adjacent steel fence post, then wrap it with Bob-wire. Or not. The local bylaw officers might not be amused.
Closed up the shop, came in and found out, once i warmed up, that an ab muscle had gone into revolt while I was outside, but the cold kept it from being noticed. About par for the course; I hate the cold and it is only going to get colder.
