    a while ago, George7777 and I took apart a piano to move it to the basement...and his brother-in-law helped move it. So it was clutering up the basement now...and I'm trying to get shit put together for the garage...so guess what I did with that old piano?????






















    yup....keep scrolling......


























    Before....

    I now have a place to mount the huge vice I got, to mount the grinder, and to sit down and port and polish heads and other things...and I can bang on it...since it's solid as hell...400+ pounds of solid wood...and it has casters...so it's moveable on the concrete floor.

    now to go get more pegboard pegs.... [​IMG]


    I was going to turn it into a bar for the basement...but I wanted a sturdy table. :p

    you should mount some kind of work light on there to get more light to see what you are working on.

    What happened to the lockers? Wanna possibly trade for my big cabinets I have? :) They will make great welding tables...

    And Clayton... Do yourself a favor... When you plumb the garage, put an air fitting on the pegboard or something, so you can use a coilhose or something like that for working at the piano.
