Still working on seeing what I can do with the much smaller work space vs the previous location.

That’s a nice shop building. I’ll bet that you will turn it into a grand workshop.

Very nice John. What kind of square footage do you have? The ply walls look promising. Good luck on the unmuddling…

Overall size of the interior is about 23 ft x 15 ft, and an existing bench along the right wall. Now I have to start re-assembling the tablesaw, drill press, dust collector, etc.

Nice start John. Maybe you will want to add a nice wood stove. There’s nothing like the heat they throw and they help keep the scraps down. I love mine.

That’s going to be a wonderful place, John! I can’t wait to see how it works out! It is quite exciting, isn’t it?? Please keep us informed as you get it set up. Congratulations on the new place. :)

The saw is in there. The main body is on the workbench next to the staff blanks, and the head of the drill press is upside down on top of it (did I mention jumble?). The extensions, legs, etc. are hiding in there somewhere. Glad I don’t move frequently.
Thanks Sheila. I’ll keep working on how to best arrange everything.

Regards.

Ooops . . . Relocation to a different house has caused a slight reduction in the available workshop area, from 23 ft x 15 ft to about 20 ft x 8 ft. If anyone has some empty square feet to ship to me . . . Well maybe not. :)
