    I hope you are feeling better, Nat! If you have 3" screws on hand, use those. If not, I would probably consider 2 1/2" screws, as I tend to sink my screws into the wood.

    That is what the consensus was online and with the videos I was watching. Since I don't have any 3" screws-I will grab some 2 1/2" ones when I get the wood. I am aiming for the purchase to happen Saturday. I would love to go to Dad's to cut the wood, but will have to see what he is doing and the status of his garage (1-Hoarder dropped off their stuff in his garage, 2- someone pushed over the hoarder's stuff and its now a slight catastrophic mess, 3-small tornado destroys garage and flings hoarder's stuff everywhere, 4-(real) national emergency status as hoarder discovers the issue and destroys the surrounding area/homes, 5-apocalyptic mess-no survivors). I am betting its a 3, he isn't very good at putting things away or organizing. His garage is bigger than ours and he has big boy tools like a hand saw. Home depot cuts wood, but they are pricey, and I don't trust them TBH. I rather go with my messed up measurements and cuts

    Well we got the wood last night and cut it all today. Got to bring it all downstairs as we cut it in the garage with Dad's miter saw. It was surprisingly fast work. The wood will spend the week in the basement, as it's too cold too keep working in the garage. Wish I could have tomorrow off to finish it-but the underwriter is on vacay for the week so the other assistant and I are it. So we will finish assembling the stands next weekend. In the meantime we will be setting up the rest of the racks today.

    Thanks RG, we have made some good progress this weekend. Just wish it was a little more but there is always something...

    We stopped at Ikea last night and got a bookcase for the basement, found two desk tops for 80% off, they were $81 and reduced to $15, and Sis picked up another Detolf shelf for her room. Till we moved all the lumber and tools downstairs, cleaned the garage, pulled the IKEA stuff out of the car and Sis rearranged her room to add the new shelf (and assembled the shelf) we ran out of time (and steam) for the racks. So racks will wait, maybe we will take some time after work, but that depends on how crazy work gets.

    Anywho here's a pic of the lumber for the 125 and 120 stands.

    Table tops for the desks.

    Wow. Congrats on the great deal for the desk tops and getting all that wood cut. It sounds like y'all got a lot done.

    I truly hope so...
    Was hoping to get the basement done before the other stuff came up on the to-do list... like the outdoor spring cleanup stuff and some needed yard maintenance. Will just play it by ear, and see what the weather allows me to do when I can do it.

    Thank you, I couldn't believe it either. They had a very pretty kitchen table for $140, was a 65% reduction for a small scratch on the table top, but we didn't have any way to take it home-it was fully assembled (rare for Ikea, lol). As we were grabbing the table tops this guy came by and said "holy sh*t, $15 dollars!", and took 3 of them.

    I was hoping to get the stands 100% done, but it really was too cold in the garage and too dirty after cutting all that wood. The miter saw does have a hook up for a sawdust catch bag, but Dad lost it so the sawdust was all over the garage, the saw, and the wood. It was a little bit messy to try and frame on.
