« Part 11: Look what followed me home today Part 12 of Tool thoughts series Part 13: Wolvie Clone in progress »

I haven’t been out in the shop much the past couple of weeks, short of turning a couple of pens and starting a spoon last weekend.

I decided to rearrange a few things today, starting with my temporary wiring panel. I’m still saving up for real wiring in the shop, among other things.

I Swapped locations on the bandsaw and storage cabinet.

I hung a 4’ shop fixture, which made a world of difference. I also ran an extension cord up and over to power my tablesaw and chopsaw, without a trip hazard.

I’ve got a lot of sorting to do tomorrow. I’ll be picking up some insulation tomorrow, as well as some dimensional lumber… I’ve decided that I’m going to build a FWW inspired newfangled bench. Mine will be 5’ long when I get it all finished.

Always fun to see a shop come together.

Looking forward to the bench, it sounds like you have a sweet design in mind.
