Preparing and starting
Material acquired, plans made. Next step to start making the pieces.
The Build will be made in different parts, so we started off cutting the pieces for them. This really was a two-man job for us, the wood panels we bought were big and hard to handle on my own.
The new table saw really did make a huge difference as we did it all manually last year.
With some careful measurements and cuts we got the parts ready that we needed to get started on the build.
We disassembled my one-man reol from last year as well as my brothers reol, the technical parts from here will be a huge help in the new build. And some of the materials are reusable.
You will however get to see major improvements and bigger, better sound system and other fun gadgets. Exactly what I won’t reveal yet and other I don’t yet know as I improvise and let the creativity flow.
Above you can see a small part of the cut materials. There is still much more to prepare for the build.
In the next post I will show you how the reol starts to take form into something you can recognize.
Concept and first stage
So, a while ago me and my brother went to the wood shop to get some of the materials we needed to get started on the build. Thankfully I just made it into the car, barely.
This will be the material for the skeleton of the shelf and the plates will be coating the shelf.
This should be enough to get us started and far into the build, but I’m sure we’ll need some more as we go.
