It’s been a long time since I’ve updated my blog, let alone updated my progress on the conversion from garage to shop progress.
Mainly because progress has been somewhat slow as real life has been intruding on the idyll of woodworking life.
But to that end, I present this joyous photograph.
That friends, is the south wall of my shop. Completely insulated, and sheathed in 1/2”-ish OSB. French cleats run in two rows, and the lathe bench and workbench are set perpindicular to the wall. The Bandsaw is either going to live there, or another wall as space is cleared up.
But, look toward at the floor, WOODCHIPS! I got things clean enough to turn a pen for a contest entry where I hope to win an also-ran, and a gardening shovel for my wife. That’s why the chips were pink, a bit of tulipwood came under the gouge and skew this last weekend.
The Electrical is almost done, with the exception of running one 20 amp circuit in hopes of purchasing a dust collector soon. Now what is left is 4/5ths of the west wall, and the ceiling which will be getting some sort of insulation. I’m torn between keeping it open so I can use the rafters for storage and such. And, it’s easier to staple up bats than it is to hang drywall then blow in insulation. Though the reflective qualities of some white drywall would be welcome.
But, there’s been progress, and that makes me smile.
