Improved bike parking
Before modifications, chaos rules. The mitre saw to the rescue!
After: a beautiful and perfect world is again upon us
We decided to improve our outdoor bike parking (for the old bikes - our good bikes live indoors when we aren't outside playing with them).
We built a super-simple "bike hanger" a few years ago. It worked well, but it had some issues like the bikes were not far enough under the upstairs balcony for good weather protection, and the bikes were not arranged very well. At least it was better than 4 bikes leaning against each other.
We had been thinking of modifications for a couple of years.
So we finally rented a mitre saw, and got to work.
(spoiler alert: we finished the job and still had all ten fingers.)
