Nah. That's a slurry of drug samples and Alfredo making it too unpredictable.

I'm looking to build a new cabinet for my disc duplicators and printers. This was my original rough idea, though I think I've decided to build a cabinet from scratch rather than modify my existing setup as this drawing shows. I bought a monitor arm mount to install on the outside left side of the cabinet so I can keep the top of that lateral file cabinet to the left uncluttered...as well as getting the monitor to eye-height while standing. The arm will allow me to push the monitor flat against the side of the cabinet when not in use. For reference:



So, I thought it might be a good idea to also get a keyboard/mouse shelf mounted on the side as well, but I can't seem to find what I'm looking for. If the mounting plate (on the LCD end) of an LCD mounting arm could be rotated back to a horizontal position, I could mount a board on there to hold a keyboard and mouse. But I've never seen an arm that would allow the TV/monitor to, in essence, face straight up, so I don't think that will work either.

So, in thinking about it, I came to the conclusion that I really only need that "board" to pivot out....then back to being flat against the side of the cabinet. So, I came up with this:



The small "block" above and below the shelf would, of course, need to be tight to the board so that the board wouldn't droop from slop at the joint. But...if I make those blocks tight, there will be wear in the joint over time. I'm thinking that if there were a low-friction material that I could install on the friction points, I can keep it all tight without the problems.

Any ideas/thoughts on the design itself? Any ideas, specifically, for keeping this tight to avoid the droop without the problems associated with doing that?

Have you considered using a trunk hinge, Mark? they usually have one long narrow arm combined with a squarer mounting face. If you use blocks of wood, a couple of nylon washers might work for you.

Adrian, are you thinking something like this?

Maybe I should have referred to them as strap hinges.

Like these.

So guys, I'm finally starting a little shop. Bought a Craftsman table saw off of craigslist yesterday, and now I'm looking at circular saws and shop vacs. Any preferences in either arena? I'd like to stay fairly cheap (say less than $200, 300 for both combined), and I need to be able to cut 4x4s and 2x6s at this time.

Here's the project:

Of course, finding the lumber is proving to be surprisingly difficult, at least since we're looking for redwood or cedar. ?!

I made 2 raised gardens in my backyard about 12 years ago. Using this kind of lumber seems like a preferred way to go, I used treated landscape logs. It's held up fairly good, but I used long spikes that are impossible to get out. The wood is getting old and the top row has rotted. Probably need to use my reciprocal saw and cut downward into pieces and remove. Then immediately build back up using some wood like in your photo.

I placed landscaping cloth on the ground, and lined it with plastic (sides only) before filling with dirt, to keep any chemicals in the wood from leaching into the good soil.
