I’m a little late in posting the blog but I can say that the new woodshop is finally done! We had a few, (about 40) friends, realatives & neighbors over for an “Open Shop”. And with my brother Tony’s award winning wine, (with custom labels I might add) we christened it… ”The New Show-Me Woodshop”. (Those New Englanders with big TV shows don’t have a thing on us Midwesterners!... Except Sponsers)
Besides making a few items for the shop, like shelves, hanger pegs & a new outfeed table for my table saw… I’ve already made a couple of non-shop projects in my new shop. I made some gingerbread for a friend’s old house & I just finished a Shaker lapdesk & posted it in my “Projects” section.
Posted are a few photos of the finished woodshop. Like all of us woodworkers, I really have a perpetual shop in progress, & am always thinking about ways to make my shop better.
Thank’s to all of those who helped me out on this project. A special thanks to my son-in-law Buck, my neighbor Earl, & a special Thank You to my wife Sue. Who without her wanting her garage back & suggesting that I make a new woodshop for myself, I’d still be shuffling crap around & around in my over crowded garage.
Enjoy the Pix!
