As I have mentioned before, it is pretty much official I will be moving in the not so distant future. That brings me to a delema: what should I do with the shop furnature?

In essence my queston is: Do you leave behind the benches and such, do you have a giant bond fire, do you sell it to the buyers?

I mean I think all of my tools I will have to put into storage, hopefully with family, and some of the stuff such as hand tools I can put into mothballs in a closet or something… But I dont think many relatives will have room for the 6×4 assembly table or the 8×2 mitre saw bench… (Although I will offer stuff like that to them first)

I’d first try to sell them on craigslist. I see people list workbenches and shop tables all the time. If no one bites, I’d give them away. Put them on your curb with a sign that says “Free.” I’m sure someone could use them. I wouldn’t burn them, although that does sound like a lot of fun.

i’m with brandon

sell them if the family
has no need of them
or can store them

glad things are working out for you
it may not be the plan you had

but star positive
and flexible

it’s a long journey thru life
and not always easy

but do enjoy
as much as you can
