« Part 3: Time for an Update Part 4 of New Home Workshop series Part 5: Finalizing the Shop Layout »

Been here for a few days breaking down everything and packing up. Sad, but it’s also nice to be looking forward to having the shop in my house.

Man, from an empty space, it was sure filled with a lot of stuff in short order. :O I just need a few more hours here to finish breaking down the Unisaw and the mitersaw station. The rest is up to the movers. Hope they have some back support :)

Willie is taking it easy today. Resting up for the big move lol

Well, you do get a new shop out of the deal, so hopefully it’s worth it. And at least you’re smart enough not to try and move it all yourself.

yeah well worth the effort and now way I was moving this stuff and everything else at home that needs to go. Twenty years ago, or even fifteen? Maybe. I would have had help then from some friends. Now they all have bad backs lol

You are moving to a nice place Bill, but I don’t envy your move. I’ve moved enough in my life that I never want to do it again.

Hey, Bill. You’re leaving Brooklyn? Where’re headed? I lived in DUMBO for about 8 years but headed east to Nassau County and bought a house in 2014.

I’d hate to have to move all that gear. I find those kinds of monumental projects paralyzing.

Hey Ripper. I currently live in Prospect Heights. The shop was in Williamsburg for the last two years. I’m heading west – to Pittsburgh lol. Thought about Nassau or the North Fork, but the taxes are crazy and I wanted more space which would mean the taxes would be even crazier. Oh the house would be way more expensive too. ;)

I’m really familiar with LI. Got my Architectural degree at New York Tech in Old Westbury and lived in Bayville among other places in Nassau. My sister is in Massapequa Park by the water, but she too is thinking of moving.

Yeah I guess I could have gotten overwhelmed by this move, but too much to look forward to in the new place to let that happen. So I just dug in and made it happen :)

Bill, I’m about to move my shop as well. I’ve sold most of my power stuff, but keeping the band saw and the planer. Would it be ok to PM you and ask a few questions?

Hey, Bill, I found that moving into the new shop is more work that moving out of the old one. However, it is greatly satisfying to see the new one come together. We’ll enjoy watching your progress!

Kevin I did the same in reducing the heavy equipment for the move. Sold a 15” Jet planer, 6” jointer, mortising machine and a 14” Grizzly BS. However I did buy a 14” Hammer BS. Couldn’t let that deal go by lol Just have that, my cabinet saw and lather to move.

Of course it’s OK to PM me lol

Hi Art. Yeah it’s a lot of work but I know it’s worth the effort. Looking forward to making saw dust in the new place :)

It’s always a job to relocate a shop and I hope that it goes off without a hitch.

Thanks Charles. Things are just about ready to go. By the end of the day, Willie certainly was lol

Last thing I’ll have to do is break down the dust collector, load all of the larger clamps into the bed of my truck and remove the clamp rack from the wall. The rest is up to the movers :)
