« Part 18: New fangled Bench almost complete Part 19 of Tool thoughts series Part 20: Moving Back into my shop »

HI gang, Things have been very quiet of late, mostly because the LOML and I have moved to the Beautiful Shenandoah Valley. Unfortunately it hasn’t been as easy as we’d hoped, due to the economy and a lack of jobs for her.

Still I’m trying to set up my new shop just the same. I have a couple of tools set up on the back porch, I started with this pile of stuff, and made sure my scroll saw still worked.

I also got a ‘new’ Drill press, which I now have set up so I can drill the pilot holes for scrolling:

well the grand migration ultimately failed. The LOML was miserable, the job market didn’t pan out as we had hoped and we’re back in NY (where my wood shop was waiting behind our house).

I’m currently renovating/fixing up my shop, cleaning and sorting all of the accumulated crud that got ignored for over a year.
