« Part 3: Got some work done... Part 4 of Shop in the Sky series Part 5: Lathe Table with dust collection »

I Spent the day building the walls for the shop. Each 4 foot panel is built separately so if I ever have to take it down, the panels can go with me. The lower panel beneath the open window can come out with a few screws if I need to forklift anything in or out of the shop.

I need to get all the rest of my tools to the shop and get everything set up and finalized, but I’m happy with the progress made!

Nice shop space. I would really like to have a sandblaster like you have. They are so handy and I don’t have access to one since I retired.
How do you get the equipment up there. Do you have a fork lift or a hoist?

The sandblaster is so great to have! I picked mine up at Harbor Freight for about $200 with a coupon. Definitely worth having one at that price.

I have a forklift so it was pretty easy getting everything up there. A little more time consuming than if it was ground level, but not too bad. And heck, for a free shop space at work, who’s going to complain? Haha.

Been here. Now I won’t worry about falling off the edge. Good job Eric. Nice to see you having some time to get to the shop. It’s much too clean, get up there and make some chips and dust.

Eric, that a real nice shop and it’s a good way to save some room.
