Planned out my schedule of work. Haven’t got anything done because I just got back to school and that guy messed stuff up. So my plan for the week is to plain all my wood
We had some pretty sustained Santa Ana's last week. The strongest gust as measured at the local weather observatory was only 43mph (~60kph), but it was a very consistent period of wind over two days. For those not familiar with the term, it is a very strong system of wind usually warm and dry that can clock upwards of 80mph (120kph).

My shop is 16×20 which sounds like a decent size except only about half is usable for woodworking, the other half is storage, lumber, etc. Here is how I started the week. This is where I’m at. This is where I think I want to be. Anything outside the shop (except A/C) are things I don’t have a place for. Anything in dashed lines doesn’t exist yet but I might build. The red line is where I have electric, eventually it will run to the back half but at the ...
I am continuing to organize my shop, adding cabinets and other tool hangers. This week I have added various tool holders to the my recent cabinet.
