Its been two months since the last update and five months since I started to build the shop. Its really coming along very well and starting to look like a wood working shop and not a storage building with empty walls.

Well Bob what a nice shop you have going on do you have an extra room in the house I’ll be right there LOL. One day I hope I can build a shop like this. I only started this a little over a year ago although I have always worked around saws for tile and hard wood floors. Now I build things to sell. Thanks for all your support on my page. One day I’d lov to go fish with ya.

That’s a great space to set up your shop, plenty of elbow room and overhead clearance.

You have a blank slate to work with, so have fun with the furnishing and fixtures. You should be a fairly accomplished cabinet maker by the time you make a home for all your tools, equipment and supplies.

Looking forward to your update posts and the evolution of the ‘Bob Shop’.

Work Safely and have Fun. – Len

Thank you everyone. I built two of the cabinets today. About 35” X 27” with three draws in each I can see I will need some heavy duty draw guides. Next week I should have the top done and the base with adjustable feet to get it perfectly level with the side of the table saw. I may just make a regular table for the out feed part with shelves for cut off storage and skip the draws because of the size and cost. I need to get busy finishing the three projects I started 6 months ago in Florida and could not finish because of moving. I also have 14 projects I need to get done for Christmas.
Thanks for watching Ya`ll (That’s what we say here in VA.)
