|02:50 pm - A spot of construction ...|
What takes 200 nails, 186 holes drilled, 96 screws, 30 metre-long shelves, 30 shelf support batten thingies, 20 flat 90° bracket thingies, 80 more screws, and 6 litres of paint ?
I don't know, but it sure holds a lot of DVDs and CDs !
Yes, it's done. Whatever "it" is. Mega DVD storage ? Epic DVD storage ? Something like that :-)
You see, our house has a ... space. A very small room, you could call it, or a box cupboard, or something. Roughly one by two metres. We decided that it was the perfect place to store our many DVDs and CDs (and tapes, and somewhere I have a couple of LPs as well). So, over the last few weeks I've measured and sawed and painted and drilled and nailed and so on, and the end result is ... still standing, for now. It'll be interesting to see how it goes when it's full of Stuff. And I'll have to post photos sometime ...
Right, then. On to the bookcases !
Current Mood: accomplished
Ooh, you had me at 'storage'. Can't wait to see the pics!
What did you do with the 14 nails for which there were no holes?
Ah, I need to introduce you to the world of David Logic (or maybe David Mathematics).
The holes were for the screws - 90 holes in the batten thingies, 90 matching holes in the walls, and 6 more holes for the side timbers (which I forgot to mention up there). The nails just got randomly hammered in wherever looked about right :)
