I have spent the the better part of the last three days reorganizing. I know winter I will breathing down my neck before I know it if I don’t get a good flow to my shop I’m afraid I’ll lose steam this winter. in the past, with my shop just being off of the kitchen, and the fact that the washer and dyer, is out there, it seem to be where all the junk got dumped, usually on my table saw. This year we are empty nester’s so, I am hoping this won’t be a problem anymore, and if it does I guess I have no one but me to blame. well back to the subject. I enlisted my wifes help and we moved everything outside except the table saw, and I build a new cut off bench on the long wall. the bench house’s my miter saw, radial arm saw and a small drill press. All Three are build into the plane of the surface of the bench and share the same fence. I stopped by sears and got me one of those device that will turn on the vacuum when I trigger the miter saw, these are handy, now I don’t have to turn on the vacuum manually no more and it lets it run for about 20 seconds after the saws off to clear the tube now I got to install the shop vac and run the hose. I hung most of my bench off the wall because the floor of my shop is out of level, and it would make one total crazy to try to level it over 15’, but I do have a small section sitting on the floor ,however; the structure the holds the top, and the saw, is what I leveled it was much easier that way. I still have to install shelves, and build some drawers, and trim the bench, but all in all I think this unit will hold a lot of tools and supplies. Now I think I need to get rid of some paint maybe I’ll take it to habitat for humanity.

Sounds a bit like my upcoming weekend(s). First the shed, then the basement. I’ve had both better than 75% clean on more than one occasion – which is like a fantasy right now.

Seems easier to just get into projects, but each will just make matters worse, yes time spent now will pay dividends into and beyond the holidays – hopefully even right up until we’re itching to get back outside next spring…
