Say that three times fast…

Morning all (yes, I know some of you won’t read this until some other time of the day, it is Now morning so there….) [_]D

This morning I’m sitting here pondering what to do next in my shop…

I have that stack of lumber ‘in the way’ at the moment, but for today at least it is going to have to Stay in that state, a stack of lumber vs a finished project. I’m building a set of Jake’s Chairs, and I realized late saturday night that I need to pick up a few more rough pine boards from the mill. One problem: my wife has the SUV at her work and my son just took his pickup to help his grandparents move (several hours away).... so for today at least the chairs are on hold.

That’s ‘ok’ I have more than enough ‘to do’ out in the shop currently since I’m effectively doing a top to bottom re-fit of my shop. Saturday night as I was leaving the shop I tripped and fell, so one thing I Must do is clear the entrance of any and all trip points, and while I’m at it, I need to rebuild/rework my shop entrance. SO once I have my coffee, I think that clearing the detritus out of the way is going to be Job 1.

Following that, I am going to clear the SW corner of the shop out, finish putting up insulation and then put up some plywood over that. HOpefully I can enlist the aid of my eldest son to hold up the plywood while I drive home the screws, we’ll see.

David, thanks… it goes well, I’ve already collected the various bits of the chairs in one area (need to clear out more space so I can put them somewhere than where they’re stacked, just part of the small shop dance…) As a Bonus, I had an old stereo out in the shop, cheap little sony (I think) with bookshelf speakers. Three disc changer plus tape deck. It hadn’t been turned on in at least 2 years, and I was going to put it to the curb with a ‘works, free for the taking’ sign on it… decided to check the CD tray, and found a treasured CD that I hadn’t heard in forever… (well, 2 years anyway)!
Came right in the house to add it to the iMac and then the iPod! Going to be tuning out to Double Indemnity’s ‘Songs that get you in the Heart’ as soon as the sync is done.

One happy woodworker! Finally got the plywood up in the corner of the shop, and could bring in my newfangled workbench. (it had been out in the elements for a month…)
