« Part 3: Cabinet Build Part 4 of Router Table Build series Part 5: Cabinet Build »

Added the center wheels this past weekend. Then discovered that the base was actually 12” deeper than I originally planned…asleep at the wheel or my subconscious knew better? Now I have shelf space in back to hang jigs :-)

With all the reorganizing—feel like I’m playing a giant came of tetrus; move something to move something to move something—I managed to bury my sheet stock way in the corner so I can’t reach it without moving a lot of stuff. Oh well I needed to finish the other half of the barn anyway. So Router Table Cabinet build will have to wait to another day.

Purchased hardware for Band Saw fence build (miter track guides from Rockler), yet another project on hold till I have access to sheet goods.

Wife visited the shop the other day to see how barn clean-up project was going. She came and went without me even noticing. Only comments were I came in and you didn’t notice me there, you were just running back and forth putting stuff away….

Did some fine tuning on auto shop area. Now have a supply cabinet hung for automotive chemicals, parts bins, and places to store creepers. That means the garden, chimney and plumbing stuff will need to find a new home.

That is a fine job of shop organization.

You just have to much shop! Or is it to much shop stuff! The more room you have the more stuff you can put in it.

I had to push every thing back to the back of the shop the other day so I could bring the car in to do some work on it. What a pain in the rear! Must be nice to have a area for each task.

Okay, so I’ll admit it, I’m jealous!! LOL

@OldGuysRule, LOL….this is a major reclamation project. Before all this space? the entire barn looked like below. I’ve been reclaiming the space from being a clutter dump to becoming a real workshop and RV storage barn—well maybe it will never become an RV storage barn again.

I still have the other half of the barn to do which is what is pictured above….Twenty+ years of collecting junk. We’ve (3) Basketball hoops and our kids are pretty much out of the house, Surfboards? and we’ve living in Washington State now, etc…

Is there a REALLY big yard sale in your future?

I see a snow sled way back in the back, you better keep that it may come in handy! Also may want to keep the mattress in case your kicked out of the house for throwing away something you shouldn’t have. LOL

Still to much shop!!!!
