We spent the day moving everything out of the “automotive side” of my garage/shop so that blowing, sweeping, blowing again, then acid etching the concrete could take place.
Tomorrow morning the Behr 2-part epoxy will be cut in around the perimeter, then rolled. Three hours later, it will get cut in and rolled a second and final time. I’ll move back in this weekend hopefully.
What does this have to do with lumberjocks ? Well, its the same material I used on my woodworking shop floor (the 3rd bay of this garage) and it has performed absolutely great. As always, it’s all in the quality of the prep and the material as far as adhesion goes.
Also, SWMBO graciously does not give a rat’s rectum how I arrange things (out here anyway), so when I do move back in I have decided to annex the wall (just outside the wood shop bay) to wood-working endeavors. I’ll add a foot of DC “manifold” from the existing through the wall and add a section of the Rockler Dust Right hose to take care of DC in that room as well. The planer and the “island” will reside along that wall right away.
Lathe and large bandsaw someday.
You know how imperialism works: You get your foot in the door and keep going. I’m seeing a future real work bench in the middle of bay 2.
I did not use the color chips on the wood shop floor, but the jury is still out on this adjoining floor. I’ll make a call and live with it sometime tomorrow afternoon.
Here’s where we’re at now:
This is the traffic jam that this has temporarily caused on the shop side: Can’t get to or use ANYTHING !
