« Part 6: Organizing continues Part 7 of Tool thoughts series Part 8: Storage cabinet for the shop »

loaded truck
Looted my storage unit today. I had this pile of wood in there… plus just a bit more ‘shorts’ and ‘cutoffs’ but they’ll come home tomorrow.

I had to clear out the rack just above the mitersaw, so I put up a couple more arms on the wall and moved the short stock over there.

I won’t need to buy too much wood for awhile.. who am I kidding anyway?

Mostly cherry, (middle section), plus some maple and butternut (bottom and top sections)

I also picked up some insulatiion, just enough to finish the end wall, I’m having to piecemeal the rest of the shop out, unless I hit the lottery. LOL

I’ve got a lot of move stuff to get it installed, but that’s the way things will go from this point on.

I only built the sidewalls with 2×4’s, so I can only fit R-13 roll insulation in the walls, but I’m also going to cover that with Reflectix, which will bring the walls up to r19. When I get around tuit. The roof will get R-19 with reflectix over that, which will net R22.. It will take me awhile to get it all done is all.

This is going to be quite the shop. I am in the basement so I dont have to worry about cold, dust is my problem, gets all over the house. I just installed a huge squirrel fan in my window to suck out the dust. Works great but it sounds like a tornado in the basement when I am upstairs!

Thanks, it was/is as big as I could swing at the time. It will be a nice man cave, I can’t hope for more than that.
