no previous part Part 1 of Setting Up Shop series Part 2: A Little Progress »

Well, this blog is my first blog, but I thought it would be interesting for me to detail my little adventure in setting up my new shop. In my Workshop page, I talked about moving to a new apt, where I would have a portion of my garage to be dedicated to a shop (of sorts). So this blog is a continuation of that original posting.

I added a few pics to the workshop page, as I haven’t figured out how to embed them here in the blog yet.

I snapped a couple pics last night after I sorted out my shop boxes and tools, from the rest of our storage stuff. As the pics show, I have yet to unpack any boxes! But I still need to build some shelves, a few cabinets, etc to house some of my things and get re-organized. Hopefully I will remember to snap pics along the way so I can show some progress.

I had a friend with a single car garage shop in an apt building. When ever he was working in it and had the door open, many of the neighbors would stop by and check into his latest project. They seemed to have a lot of interest in what he was making and he enjoyed sharing.

Paul, you are in the fun stage of setting up shop now. It is enjoyable to build cabinetry and benches for the shop. Seeing progress pictures will be interesting.
