« Part 1: The Plan, Advice Wanted Part 2 of Setting Up Shop series Part 3: Finally Some Progress »

I have done a lot of work on the woodshop since my last post. My fiancee and I spent a weekend painting the whole garage, and it looks awesome. The previous owner had taped and screwed stuff to the walls all over the place, and now all those marks have disappeared.

Once the painting was done, I was able to move my tools and workbench in, with the help of 3 strong friends. I’m sure glad I only had to move the table saw about 3/4 of a mile to the new house. Here’s what the shop looks like now.

I had the electrician out two days ago to talk about what I need, so it shouldn’t be too long before I’m all wired up and ready to go. Next projects will definitely be clamp/tool racks on the wall above the bench and some shelves for finishing supplies (already finished this project). Oh, and I’ve got to sand that coffee table that you see in the picture and get it finished before my fiancee kills me.

Nothing better than setting up a shop and preparing for work. It’s like anticipation near the end of a project.

-- Better woodworking through old hand tools.
