Get you a swivel recliner that needs to be thrown away

Getting older, I wanted to find a easier way to work on riding mower decks.

I hope to be buying a handy lift soon which raises to 39″.

The plan is to remove the deck and slide it onto a cart of something, but I recently had to throw away an old recliner and I found this underneath it which gave me an idea.

I could mount a 2 foot by 4 foot piece of plywood to it.

And then I could bolt that to this old table saw platform that I had.

Which would give me something like this that I could leave a foot or so away from the handy lift, and when I needed to remove a deck, I could position the plywood next to the lift and slide the deck on there, and then rotate it 90 degrees so that I could easily work on the deck as needed.

By doing it this way, it would be out of the way when I don’t need it, and it can also be used for other things that I might want to swivel to work on.

Starting with a empty building

Has a hole in the roof that I need to fix once money is available.

Plan is to build a u shaped workbench where that table is which basically will be a 8 foot x 30 inch mechanical workbench where the table currently is, and a similar electronic workbench next to the window with a 8 foot x 2 foot counterĀ  facing the garage door.

The door on the right will remain functional and I hope to add a handy lift for the riding mowers.

The door on the left will be closed off to mount a window ac and a walk in door with air compressor, parts washer, etc. near the electric panel, and a push mower lift near the walk in door.

Where the current wood shelves are at will be parts storage with consumables on those 3 shelves, and peg board on the wall for clam shell type stuff and I will put the majority of parts on the inside as there is another door providing access to that room.
