Ha! The state is a little better organized, a little cleaner and I’m a little more sane again.
In preparation for the Unisaw delivery this week, it was a good idea to better organize things and get some of the boxes and tools out of the main part of the shop and into my future napping room for temporary storage. So I spent an hour or so, moving, sorting and sweeping. Felt much better about everything after doing so. It was getting a little sloppy as I’ve only been able to spend a few hours there and cleaning wasn’t on the agenda. Today I chose to spare myself from watching the Jets lose to the Giants and went to the shop to clean. I guess my good intentions of cleaning first and sawing later, were rewarded – THE JETS WON!
Well anyway, after cleaning things up I got back to the miter saw station. I want to be mostly finished with it by the time the Unisaw shows, so I can spend time putting it together. I also have a Bosch 10” glider coming tomorrow night, so I want to have the final resting place for it ready. Then I can move the other two miter saws out – have the 12” Ridgid listed on CL for $325 with the riser stand and 3 blades and no takers, just some low-ballers. I’ll keep the 10” Kobalt for working around the house. Same goes for the 4100.
Well here’s a little shop tour of sorts,
My future lounge :)
That sink was probably put in place by the prior occupants. It’s a shower pan with constructed sides. It’s acutally kid of nice to have such a large sink with a sprayer. It also has a frosted Lexan panel at the back that’s illuminated from behind. Prior tenant did silkscreening so maybe it was used in their production in some way. But it has to go. Landlord is installing a box store slop sink so I can have some space to put a desk and a recliner :)
Here’s a repurposed discard from a neighbor. It’s a rolling file system I repurposed to keep my handy tools handy.
I think it’s a keeper. Going to make some mods, but it’s working well just the way it is. The baskets slide so I can reach stuff in the bottom basket.
My current office and the rest of the shop.
Cut the doors for the left side cabinets, finished up the maple edging on everything and leveled it all up again. It just needs some carriage bolts to hold it together and it’s serviceable. Oh yeah, the drawers. Have to do the drawers and the fence. Drawer glides were delivered over the weekend, so they should happen tomorrow.
Big week coming for the shop. Unisaw, Bosch miter saw and HF dust collector should all be on site by mid-week. :)
