Wow, I didn’t realize I only made one blog entry before now and that was nearly two years ago!

Fast forward a couple of years…

I haven’t been able to do as much with woodworking as I had hoped but that will soon change I hope! My wife and I will soon be closing on our new home. One of the best features is the 23×29 workshop attached to the garage! Plenty of room to set up all the power tools and not have to move things around all the time to use them all.

I’ll try and get back to post more later and bring you all up to speed on the things I’ve made. In the meantime, here’s a picture of my soon-to-be shop! It needs a little electrical work done before it’s fully up to speed but a good friend of mine and I will be able to get it up to par in no time!

And, yes, this is a dedicated workshop. No vehicles are parked inside it at all. It even has a small corner office.

Check back soon. I’ll be sure to keep you all updated!

That looks like a fine space for a nice shop. It beats the hell out of the size of my shop. I hope the building of your shop goes well and wish you the best. Keep us posted on your progress.

Wow, I agree with neil.
I wish I was moving in a new space, good luck.
I see you have a support post right in the middle of your new space.
I have two posts in my shop that I found to be challenging when laying out my shop.
I’m anxious to see your layout.
Keep us (POSTED). LOL
