Shopping list

Here are the consumables that need to be bought for a workshop, grouped by store type.  The left column tells how many GBGs can be built with the quantity stated in the right column.  For example, to build 15 GBGs, you'd need one sheet of 1/2" plywood, thirty Simpson A34 brackets, and two bundles of builder's shims.

There are other one-time purchases, but the items listed here are the ones that are proportional to the number of GBGs.

There are some notes:

You might buy this at Home Depot, but my HD didn't carry satin finish and wouldn't special-order one can.  Ace Hardware special-ordered the can and guaranteed to match Home Depot's price.

At Ace, full boxes are much cheaper than per-part prices.  If they're out of full boxes, special-order it and allow a week for it to arrive.
