what you need to know about water damage

I am the first to admit that I am not the best home repair person in the world. When something breaks, it usually takes me a while to figure out how to make the repairs or to break down and hire someone to make the repairs for me. When my dishwasher was leaking, I made the big mistake of not taking action immediately. Instead, I just stopped using it. I thought that not using it solved my problems, but it didn't. About three weeks later, I had to hire a repair contractor to fix all of the damage that the dishwasher had caused. Find out about water damage on my blog.

Ready To Make Furniture In Your Garage But Worried About Time And Messes? What To Know


If you are interested in building your own furniture or building furniture and selling it to others, but you don't want to make a total mess of the garage or end up wasting a lot of time, there are some things to consider. Here are some of the items that you want to invest in and keep in mind so that you can work efficiently and keep the space neat and clean.

Sanding Table

A sanding table is a great way to make sure that the dust and debris from the wood pieces that you're working on stays on the table and in the area where you are working, instead of ending up all around the garage, shop, or another area. This also gives a flat and even space to do your sanding on, helping to keep the project going as you hope it will and with the correct measurements and dimensions.

For more information on sanding tables, contact a company such as Aerospace Facilities Group, Inc. 

Paint Cloths and Coverage Options

You don't want to end up with paint all over the place, and it can be shocking to see how easily paint splatters. You'll want to get some paint cloths to cover the floors of the garage or space where you are working, along with the surfaces if you don't want a multi-colored table or splatters on tools and other items. There are cheap disposable options or even thicker options you wash when done and store for future use.

Organize the Tools and Pieces

Make sure that you have a chest or tool area where you can keep everything easily accessible and organized. This way, you can find what you need in a hurry and you can keep the garage or workspace neat. This doesn't have to be a large unit installed into the area but could be something that you move around on wheels in the space.

Backup Hardware

You don't want to have to have to delay the project because a screw got lost in the garage or because you are missing a bracket. Make sure that you buy more than what you need for the project, in case you have to reinforce some of the pieces, or in case something gets lost or misplaced. This prevents problems and storage of the extra hardware is easy if you have a tool box or chest.

If you know you could make a profit and start a small side business making furniture, but you aren't how to keep the time requirements down or how to make a duel workspace in the home, these are some tips to follow.
