Yesterday we woke up to the first snow of the season. We ended up officially receiving 4.6” but it has mostly melted off by this morning.
Rita’s garden is looking pretty sad. You may be wondering, and the answer is “yes.” That is a genuine outhouse but the pit has been filled and it is used as a small gardening tool shed. Putting new shakes on the roof is on my honey-do list.
On to the shop…
I started working yesterday and I got one of those stray thoughts going about how I needed to move a couple of things around. The next thing I know, I have set my work aside and have torn into moving things around for a better organized shop.
I decided to move the compressor to another location and when I took down the mounted hose reel I was left with a scarred wall. Yesterday I did the patch work and today I will paint. The steel shelving unit that holds the fasteners will sit in the spot left of the electrical panel. It makes more sense to keep the fasteners close to me where I use them.
I got one end of the room organized, but now I need to figure out where to hang my clamps. Thoughts of organizing the clamps is actually what started it all. I never use the double doors out the end of the shop so I may remove them because I could use solid wall real estate more at this time.
It does not look like I have done much yet, but the shelving with finishes and stain is in place and organized. All the mobile tools are parked against the wall. I will paint the other wall and get the fasteners shelving in place today.
Peace, Love, & Woodworking
