I love the workbench!
I just got done with a coronavirus project myself. Several years ago I remodeled our basement to be a Petro display room. I must have been so excited to hang up signs, that I never got around to finish off the three windowsills. I cut the oak boards and moldings, put them in and applied the finish in the last couple days. Yay!

Another day in Social Distancing. Worked at the food pantry today sorting through over 500 pounds of donated retail meats in 13 boxes. I pulled out 50 hot dog packages and other small items from the boxes on the right to go in the boxes on the left. We usually buy a package of hot dogs and a pound of hamburger for each recipient family to go with a nice load of donated canned goods, produce and some meat. Our supplier said no hot dogs or hamburger may be available when we need them. I pulled these items out to supplement the 120 packs of hot dogs we have to come up with 170. Don't know how many families will show up for food with all the newly unemployed.

Also did a mock-up of the work flow for distribution day, keeping volunteer positions 6 feet from one another. We are changing to a no-close-contact drive-through distribution to protect volunteers and clients from spreading the coronavirus. Probably 80% of all the people involved are high risk for age or health issues. Wife and I and our friends and relatives are all doing fine so far. Trying to stay that way and help others to do the same.

Come on you guys, there's got to be some of you making use of your time at home during Shelter in Place restrictions. I had this Walk sign for years, hoping to find its mating Don't Walk sign. I gave up and wired the sign to a motion sensor and hung it on the garage inside wall. Any time there is movement in the garage, I get illuminated permission to "Walk."

Let's see your projects!

I stay socially distant in my garage most of the time anyway but it has really cramped my travels this year as we would normally be at our place in Florida right now catching fish. Hoping by the time the ice is out up north this has all eased up or the fish up there will get a break too. But, since we are all confined to home it is a great chance to do the things we tend to put off. Last week I reworked the top of my tool cabinets and mounted rings and lights for twelve globes where only six sat for years. I have had the set of five Apco globes in boxes for a long time and needed to make room for those to display together and this was a good space for them. Every time I squeeze out another place for globes I say I’m through buying more since I’m out of room to display them. 😂 Seems I always figure out another corner to put more.....GB

Good looking garage light, ALSS72. Envious of your workshop wall there, Rabbitman.

Not an accomplishment to compare to any of the above posts, I found an old double-end brass tire chuck to go on my restored Revere island pole.
I had it all along in my stash of priceless petro junk.

Post what you're doing during Shelter-in-Place
