« Part 5: Day 5 Part 6 of SHOP 2016 series no next part

Well I have the roof on.
Need to finish trim,
Carried most of my stationary tools in today. Had to go to 4 different storage areas, one more trailer full tomorr

ow and thats it.
YIKES. How did I manage to get so many?
I tend to be a hoarder when it comes to tools.
7 table saws.
3 from Ontario (where I lived for several years)
3 from ALberta where I also lived for 12 years
1 from SASK, where I started my business 1976.
They are all sitting there ….....there is a BUZZ on I think !
Everything worked on paper. Now that I have new building and actually placing them ?

Yes it is Jim. I have trailer backed into doorway to unload. It is drizzling here this morning already.
I can PLAY !
I just realized how much I missed my tools and shop.
Was living in apartment for past 3 years.
Now I live in apartment.
I knew I was not ready to quit playing with lumber.

Oh you are going to wish you hadn’t moved in so soon … Insulating and wall board will be a real chore now with the 7 table saws and all …

It was like a 10 year old waiting for Christmas when I built my new shop a couple of years ago … but I waited till the insulation and the walls were done, and Now I’m glad I did.

Moving in was an experience for sure … That 220v. plug “shudda” been over there a bit and this won’t fit like on the paper drawing says it will … and so on.

Now fast forward three years, I’m still re arranging things in the shop, but man, am I having fun doing it … You have some great times heading your way … congrats on having everything in one spot in your new shop.

Thanks Grumpymike. I know I should have waited too. BUT.
I have been trying to work outside. When it rains I do absolutely NOTHING.
I do have most saws and tools on wheels or carts which makes moving them around a bit easier !
I also had stuff stored in 4 different places, when I went to do a job I almost ALWAYS forgot something I needed.
Perhaps now I can be a little more organized once again !

canadianchips,

I was raised in the Pacific Northwest and over the years I tend to forget what it’s like to work in the inclement weather every day. Now that I live in the endless sunshine, we insulate to keep the heat out and the cool in.

Again congrats on the new shop.
