a new woodworking project
So, this thing sucks. Going to build something in that corner to take its place and also to put plants on and store pool supplies. I broadly know what I want to do, something triangular to fit in the corner, with graduated steps so that nothing is blocked out of the sun unless I want to

Was thinking of something with a 4x4 in the corners against the wall and 2x4s connecting them front and back so that I'd have a sort of slot to place the pool brush in when I'm not using it, as well as garden stakes

On at least one of the 4x4s it's going to go up to 8ft or so so that I can hang the philodendron

Anyone have any inspiration for me?OMG

Since you have a frame there for the door, can you use the closet type hangers that are coated in ? vinyl or pvc or whatever.

Mount one hanger to the frame and one to the house

This stuff

Paint it some other color so its not ugly and doesnt show the dirt that it will get on it

Durr you want to hang stuff on it. My bad

the plastic will crack in the sun and then it'll rust just like that piece of shit did

PT will last for years before it starts to look like shit, even longer if you seal it

which reminds me, i need to seal the plant stand i made

also, i'd have to build an entire sideframe for it to bolt up to

#1) that thing sure is ugly


Use a 6x6 in the back, and the upper tiered shelves do a support thing with 4x4s. Its going to have to be hefty.

you know, since i got Ubuntu i'm fucking happy as hell with my laptop, i never have problems anymore, but it doesn't come with one decent pre-installed program like MSPaint that allows you to qhip up a quick drawing

i have to go with Gimp or something

long story short, gimme a second i'm designing something

just get something from ikea

Forever Domon 02-23-2012 01:42 PM

also, for a paint comparable app, gpaint.

GIMP can be a pain in the ass due to overcomplexity

Forever Domon 02-23-2012 01:43 PM

or pinta, pinta looks nice

rough drawing of an isometric perspective of what i'm thinking

at least one of the uprights will have a hanger off of it for Phil the Dendron, possibly build a shelf between them, possibly not, i'll have plenty of space on the shelving underneath

the two arms coming from the rear upright to the front will have a latch or something so i can lean the pool brush in there as well as other stuff

nothing there that has a good enough design for what i want.

also, that corner slopes down and has the drain there, so i'll have to design something that i can adjust the corners of and maintain the drainage

i'll take a look at both, thanks

the angled piece for the pool broom part will interfere with whatever i want to drop down in there to hold, i'll have to figure something out there
