This is bite-sized post – not really a full post or anything all that interesting, but I wanted to document my ongoing efforts to make a 1-car garage into a world class shop, or whatever is as close to that as possible.
I finally drilled some holes in my resawing jig and hung some flanges and pipe nipples to get this thing out from under my feet all the *$#& time. I’ve tripped over this 50x now at least, and it doesn’t matter where I lean it. It’s always somewhere I’m going to absent-mindedly step:
I couldn’t find a place I liked for my baltic birch resawing fence, but here’s okay for now. It’s hung by a deck screw through a drilled hole:
Here are the nipples and flanges along with some shelving equipment:
The shelving stuff was for this:
These are 4 shelves intended just for green wood turning blanks. Whenever I do something like cut up an olive log into blanks, they tend to float around the whole shop getting in the way. Now I can stick them up here. I have a few small logs up there, too, but I’m hoping to turn them very soon. I was just glad to stop stepping over them. It was remarkable how much more open and empty the place felt just moving the few piles of these things up there:
As I said, just a morsel of a post…
I’m calling it: incremental organizational improvements.
