I get the feeling that it might take me more than a weekend to get my new workshop fully operational. For now, I’ll start off with the “as-is” basics, and update as I go along.

Here`s the view of the workshop from the house. Can`t keep the glue out there since there is no heat (minor problem).

When we moved in a few weeks ago, all of the workshop items were basically off-loaded into the workshop as they came off the truck (translation = quite a muddle). Here`s what I will be going through to get things all sorted out, but I expect to end up with a well laid out shop where I can get back to making new projects.

To be continued . . .

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.
