GHet the tools in there and start making dust. Shouldn’t have much of a clean up problem.

that’s exciting. Before you move the tools onto it you need to host a dance party :)

Hi Sawhorse;
—-I think that Debbie’s got the right idea, first on list before the tools come in, is the ‘barn yard’ dance.

Great workshop you’ve got going up here!

Looking good! Time to get a temporary pole with some power and fire up the old tablesaw. LOL. It is going to be interesting to see which one gets finished first. The house or the shop!

I had so much fun vicariously participating in the construction of a friend’s free-standing shop. Thanks for sharing and letting us participate!
