Hi everyone, just a short blog to catch up with those who care. Moved into the new house back on June 19th and have been getting settled every since. For those of you who have moved before you know how long the settling takes. This is the first time I’ve moved my shop. With all the moving I’ve done in the past nothing was more frustrating that having my tools packed away. It’s amazing how even some you think are dedicated to woodworking get used for other things around the house. Anyway, the new shop space is awesome, I feel like I have acres to work in [SMILE]. I do find I walk around a lot back and forth, but better organization will help with that. Got my clamps hung up and the old reliable clam-shell cabinet. Some shelves have also helped, but most are put away for now. Pictures after I figure things out myself. Oh, installed a couple of new lights as well. First project is to refinish an old oak ice box style coffee table we’ve had for a very long time and just looked awful in the new living room. So, I have it down to the wood at 80 grit and experimenting with stains to match some store bought junk…I’ll replace later. That and playing golf…it is that time of year after all….LOL. That’s about as far as I’ve gotten, doesn’t sound like much, but it is. More later as I get the shop fixed up…I think one of Marc’s torsion box tables will be the first shop project.
