Build that Wall!

Started building the new range. Started by planting the back 6×6 treated posts.

A little while later, added 2 more on both sides.

Then we started stacking the ties.

A little over half way done.

Got some more done today:

Cut the excess off the top:

We used 10 inch screws to secure the ties to the posts:

I will be using the excess cut from the top to make braces for the back:

Got the angles on the 6×6’s

Planted the support 4×4’s four feet deep and concreted in.

Back Finished up:

I added 2 leftover ties to the inside corners:

Dropped in some dirt:

Going to push it back, this is where we are for now:

Got it pushed back:

Think we are ready to shoot! We will continually make improvements but I think the major work is done.

Targets Added!

Paint Booth Setup

I wanted to build a paint booth for the shop. I wanted it to help keep over spray down and provide at least a little ventilation. Here is what I cam up with.

I had a 4×8 sheet of hard board from another project. I measured everything out and cut it up:

In the back panel I drilled out some 2 and 3 inch holes in a 20×20 square. The same size as an air filter:

I then made a frame to hold a 20×20 AC filter. Again using scrap I had laying around:

I used Gorilla tape to hold it all together. The hard board is too thin to nail and if I needed to, I could cut the tape and lay it down.

Back Side:

Lastly, I added some lights and a lazy Suzann:
