Wish I could say the same. I think everyone puts them in their trailers to move material at the job or shop.

I hate buying lumber anywhere where I have to load it up on a cart and push it through a cash. Drive through yard is the only way to fly...or have it delivered...

I prefer that as well.

Same price, but a savings of 40 minutes and 15 miles.

9 boards.

I hold tape a couple of ways.

Plywood base, 1Ē hole in the middle. 3/4Ē PVC in the hole, 10Ē high. Like a paper towel holder.

On a shelf, Iíll sink a timberlok lag an inch deep, leaving 5 or 7Ē to put rolls of tape over. It could go horizontally as well.

A couple new additions:

1/2Ē pipe flange, nipples, and elbows make a u shaped rack for the caulk guns. I did not want them to hang straight down and swing.

- Those motion sensor lights are great, only coming on at night. They only stay on 20 seconds, and the batteries last a long time.



Flexvolt battery covers make handy battery holsters. The multi tool shaves off the red plastic so the batteries slide in but donít latch.



This is old, but gold. I like the trashcan in the back for trashing out debris. Iím happy to say the plywood cut out works great. Even a trip down the freeway with an open door didnít end with a mishap.
