We are so happy to have breathable air again. SO HAPPY. This afternoon we were able to venture outside and work in the garage again. We made progress on our Wood Rolling Rack.

We've been doing a lot of cleaning this summer. Since we've been trapped in our house due to the unbreathable air outside, we turned our attention to the basement this week. It's not quite time yet for photos because there's still a couple of piles that need to go away, but it's so much better down there.
I found this stashed behind the freezer:the last time I posted about this was in February 2009. Then we moved to Redwood City and never worked on it there and without ever unwrapping it we moved it to Oregon and it got stashed/hidden in the basement.
We also finally glued up a plant stand I made in a woodworking class in late 2011! I actually stained it way back in 2012 when we stained the master bedroom, but then it got stashed into a corner of the living room and we never got around to finishing it.

All of our outdoor projects came to an abrupt halt when that branch blew off the roof last week because that was when the fires around Portland got so out of control.
|Elephant Lamp. I have no recollection of keeping this. I have no idea what to do with it. LOL|
|Elephant Sprinkler. This attaches to a hose and then the water sprays out the trunk. I haven't tried it yet.|

rolling lumber cart, but when this huge branch blew down off the roof, we decided we'd better redirect our efforts toward cleaning up the wood leaning up against the house.
|This branch actually broke off the tree a couple of weeks ago,|
but the wind blew it down off the roof into our work area.

Here is where we are now.
There is still some remaining wood leaning against the house.
the beautiful wide douglas fir we bought several years ago. Most of the wood has already been stowed in the garage on top of the new rack and on wall brackets; this is what is left outside.
After this recent success, we're feeling brave and we're going to try and build this mobile wood rack.

The original plan called for 7-foot uprights but the 2x4s came in 8-foot and rather than cut them down we changed the spacing on the shelves to accommodate taller items.
It's really hot again so we're struggling to work much past 3PM. This is where we left it for the day. We'll get back to work tomorrow morning doing some sifting.

|That insulation and OSB were just leftover bits we had kicking around|
in the garage. We figured we may as well install it all in the shed.
