I’m to the point finally with the retrofit of my shop that I’m happy with my progress, and starting to seriously consider where I’m going with all of this. I finished putting up the sheathing over the insulation earlier this week, now I’ve brought my workbench back into the shop, and I’ve started decorating the shop a bit. I’m an ex trucker, and also ex dispatcher, so I’ve spent many an hour looking over atlases for routing and what not. To that end, I tore apart an older atlas, and started hanging bits of it on my walls.
The pages are laminated, and should shed sawdust easily, plus I’m not so worried about them that I mind putting holes in them as needed for shelving supports etc.

My next goal is to get all of the boxes and bins sorted through, so I can finally figure out where to put all of the Stuff I’ve accumulated. That way once I’ve got it put away, I can determine what I have, and what I need to pick up for the shop.

Gotta run, I’ve got the SUV today and I need to go pick my wife up at her new job. Ciao, thanks for looking!

once it’s all in it’s space
it will take a month
to remember where it is

always good to re-organize

I went through a couple of cardboard boxes, plus one drawer in a file cabinet and a three drawer tool box… all of the tools were consolidated into the file cabinet. Found that I need to drill out a lock on the cabinet for some darned reason. three more drawers on the cabinet, and a mountain of cardboard boxes yet to go. Not going to buy Anything else for the shop until I know what I have… (ie, I was thinking I would like to buy a flush trim bit… found 2 in the tool box tonight…)
