I spent the morning stacking all my wood in one pile against the side of the shop. Now I have enough room to add the jointer and planer and still be able to work and move around.
The trash man is going to love me Thursday because of all the wood I’m throwing away. Mostly small pieces.

This was mostly a wood pile before.


This is all the wood that was taking up about three times the room it does now.

Plenty of room to move around the workbench.

Nice going, Russell. It looks real nice. If I had a nice storage shed near my shop I could get it in pretty good shape. I am really push for room when it comes to my lumber.

Helluvawreck, at least there are no more large tools I need to buy after this planer. I may some time in the future build a router table, but frankly, I don’t use the router that much. It’s under the large bench now, brand new PC with table, used once. I’m actually thinking of adding on about 8’ to my garage into the driveway, that would make for a sweet shop, but first I need to make some money out of this venture.

Nice job man. I need to do the same with all my scraps laying around everywhere. I built a scrapwood box but that filled up awfully quick. I need to build a scrap wood shed. It’s just so tough throwing good away, regardless of the size.

Hope you can build out your shop sooner than later. Good luck and keep it up!

Russel, my shop is smaller than yours. I have one space on the wall where I may be able to mount me a router table where it would fold up against the wall. The legs would simply fold out from the wall and you would lower the table onto the leg assembly. Maybe you could do something like that. No matter what, I think that you will come to appreciate a router table more and more. Best of luck to you.
