« Part 1: Unpacking Part 2 of Setting Up Shop series Part 3: A little more organization »

So it has been a couple of weeks since I began to ‘unpack’ my shop. Made a little progress, but nothing worth mentioning. However, I have managed to find enough of my tools to begin working a little. I have made a set of bean bag toss boards, which I didn’t get pics of yet, but will post in my projects as soon as I can do that.

I have also began building an interesting cabinet of sorts that I designed. I’ll keep that little gem a secret for now, and will definitely post pics once I am finished.

All in all, I’m starting to get things sorted out, reduce the number of boxes and actually see tools on shelves, etc. I need to make my way to the lumber store to buy some plywood to begin making my cabinets, and tool stands. I hate having to move my miter saw to use my router on the only portable workbench I have right now … what a pain!

So I know this post didn’t say much, or show any progress, but I have been making small progress! you just can’t see it yet!!!!

working on the photos … still have to figure out where to post them on the web, so I can link to them here in the blog … don’t want to clog up the workshop page with a bunch of in process pics
