In this What’s in my Shop I give a quick (sort of) tour of the new shop that I’ll be working on and hopefully soon in…

CLEAN SLATE!

I’m pumped for you Mos. This will be a sweet set up.

Do you think that you will stay pretty exclusive to hand tools, or do you think you’ll add some power tools to the mix now that space isn’t as much of a concern?

Glad to hear you’re running a gas line – I love having a gas heated shop.

I do have a jointer and a radial arm saw waiting for me. I’d like to have the ability to do some stock prep while killing some electrons if I want to. Sometimes I like to just get the project done lol

Congrats Mos. If anyone deserves a nice shop, you do. It is a lot of work to get a new shop up and running and quite a bit of expense too, so pace yourself. I’ve been amazed at the difference insulation makes. Cool in the summer, warm in the winter. So far this winter I have only turned the heater on once and after 30 minutes I was sweating so I turned it off again. The other big plus for me after working in my back garden for so long was to have music. I’m a big fan of Spotify and although I have an ipod dock, CD player, numerous digital radio channels, etc., I invariably connect my phone and pick something from Spotify. I’ve even been known to bust a few moves.

I’m looking forward to seeing your shop evolve over the coming months.

I think that this is a good video opportunity for you and Andy to do a film! Shop Boogie Nights
