Well it is an understatement to say that my shop is a mess right now. I have so much stuff crammed in this 24X12 space that it is really difficult to work around all of the stuff that I have in there. I basically move everything out of one spot so I can work on that spot. Then I clear one area to make another place to work. This is proving challenging to do the electrical because a circuit could run from one end of a wall to the other end. Anyway, right now, I am installing my lighting. I ran part of the circuit tonight and hope to finish it tomorrow night. Having the lighting installed and working will help a lot since half of my struggle is setting up temporary lighting in order to see what I am doing. Also, I spend as much stuff moving stuff around as I do working on anything. I will be glad to get this project finished so I can get back to some fun stuff like restoring old tools or doing some lathe turning. What I am most looking forward to is that, assuming I have calculated correctly, I will be able to get to all of my most commonly used machines (table saw, band saw, chop saw, lathe, drill press, jointer & planer) without having to move anything to get at them. I expect it will take me two or three more weekends to get this job finished.
