I haven’t had a lot of shop time in the last week or three, but I have been able to make some progress. I’ve got all the items that were all over the place stored at least temporarily. I’m going to take a break from moving things around until I’ve made a few projects and get a better feel for how my flow in the shop will be. Here’s how the shop looks as of yesterday:
“main” bench area where I’m keeping most of my tools
Moving to the right, some wall storage for clamps and jigs, my router table, and the beginning of the CMS bench
The cabinets above and below hold finishes, and misc supplies. I added the dust hood over the CMS. I’d love to get a better DC arrangement here, as you know it spits dust all over even with the hood.
Lumber and misc storage along with dust collector and planer/air compressor cart. The sawhorses and stuff on them are about to get put away and/or thrown away so that I can rearrange my table saw. I’m going to turn it around so the dust port faces the opposite direction.
The only shop project I’ve been able to get to is to add some drawers to my router table. This thing cracks me up….i’ve used about 10 different types of wood/plywood/mdf on it. My scrap bin is nearly empty. It’s not pretty, but it works great. I was able to get all of my routers, accessories, bits, etc into the drawers here. It freed up some space in the other cabinets.
Still to come:
new main bench area
flip top cart for planer (to double as outfeed support)
new rolling work table
Thanks for looking!
