Well, I finally got rid of the old concessions TVs, freeing up shelf space and, honestly, clutter.
I completed the Parking Lot I Work Light for the Amphitheater, adding more light for the parking lot staff.
I showed Kayla how to use the FSL Muse Laser Engraver and Cutter.
I also showed Kayla how to use the GCC Expert24LX Vinyl Cutter.

I haven’t used the Millermatic 211 MIG Welder in a long time. The last few days ago I started welding together new Solar Charging Station Frames to replace the wooden weather-worn ones I had made a couple of years ago. I created Solar Charging Stations and placed them around the Amphitheater to power time lapse cameras and work lights.
I used SketchUp 2019 to design the replacements, using 1″ steel tube, 1-1/2″ angle steels and 2″ flat steel. I’ll use 2″ muffler clamps to mount some of the stations onto 2″ diameter poles.
My welding and assembly got better with practice.

I got the rotation done on my rotating power tool storage cart. It hold my Kreg Foreman Pocket Hole Machine, my Oscillating Spindle Sander and my Ridgid Thickness Planer.
I also added removable work top extensions on each side of power tool in use.

Some items to finish on my rotating power tool storage cart are:

  • Leveling feet,
  • Trim a 1/4-1/2″ from the bottom of the cart to gain some clearance when in transport mode,
  • Cord management,
  • And storage inside the cart.

I also did a trash run before leaving for the day.
