So now with all of the planning done I just needed to get started. I painted the shop white, ran conduit and pulled enough wire to circumvent the globe. I made one wall a parts wall and put up lots of pegboard (also painted white). Hung lighting and set them up in sections so I could turn on all or part of the shop lights. Bought some steel shelving and set up a basement area. Then drug my grinder and drill press in from the pole barn along with all of my hand tools and small power tools. This took most of a year but I was on my way. LOL
Just after Christmas I picked up a 10” Hitachi table saw that looked like it would work for what I needed. My brother also donated his chop saw to the cause. A few simple projects were done, mostly for the shop.
