In a few weeks I’ll be moving my family and my two-car garage woodshop from California to Maryland. We’re moving ourselves using ABF’s U-Pack. So I we get to do all the packing and loading, though we’ll have some help unloading.
This weekend I’m going to start the process of packing up the shop. It’s not a huge shop, but there certainly a lot of odds and ends. Scraps, small tools, etc. The only large tools I have is a Ridgid TS3650 table saw, a floor drill press, a homemade router table, and a cheap 12” bandsaw. I also have a 6” Grizzly benchtop jointer, a Dewalt planner, Ridgid OSS, floor 6×48 belt sander, small scroll saw, small miter saw, 1 HP Delta dust collector, and a couple other smaller items.
I’ve seen videos (Marc Spagnuolo’s) on packing up blades, chisels, hand planes, etc. So I feel like I have at least a decent plan on how I’m going pack everything.
However, I’m sure many of you have done this very same thing so I was wondering, does anyone have any advice, tips, tricks, or lessons learned about moving a shop?
Any feedback would certainly be appreciated! Thanks for looking.
