After a number of weeks, the floor is now done. I did keep the heat going for 24 hours a day through the process so the wood was pretty easy to work. I didn’t pull them in pretty tight as I still have some worry about what will happen this summer when it gets pretty humid around here. I left a good 1/2” all the way around the room then covered it with baseboard. Thanks to everyone who offered advice on this.
All my tools are pretty much where I want them now. I have a few projects to build, a new cart for my drill press, one for my compressor and another as a sharpening station. You know I will be changing things all the time as we are never satisfied when we see a better idea somewhere else. I guess I’m declaring the shop back in business as you can see a Shaker Clock sitting on my bench that I have worked on for the last 2 days. Couldn’t wait to make sawdust.
Here are some pics of how it turned out:
Once again thanks for all your comments and help on our re-do.
