Shop down IIIII http://lumberjocks.com/topics/56624
UPDATE 14 January 2014
Know I said it was last, but was just with a big smile and want to share it with you.
Walked in to the shop yesterday afternoon, walked down the lake, and enjoyed the birds in the winter cold water.
But what I enjoyed even more was this.
Arriving to my little work shop.
Seeing life has returned now.
Even the facade has been painted.
Getting into the shop.
Now the things are back in place, and I am almost done moving in.
Even had a fire in the stove again.
Also I meet this guy in the shop every day now, he is finishing up for the contractor.
A really kind man, we have spent a few good days there now.
Had a good moment the other day, I saw his chisels were as dull as a screwdriver and so I offered him to use my water grinder. He had never sharpened like that before, he has been a building worker for 20 years, always used an angel grinder for sharpening. So he was in sharpening heaven, when he learned to sharpen and did all his chisels, also he said he will buy a water grinder now (sure he will remember this job in Copenhagen in the future).
The back room, when I arrived…
Might look chaos, but I have now unpacked 20 boxes, so it’s great progress.
Ohhh and look I build a little the other day.
A storage for tools, lumber and a table top for drill press and disc sander.
So even it looks chaos, things are getting along.
The last boxes unpacked.
Hmmmm, that will be todays job.
Yes and I also managed to rebuild this one, so I can now use it for lumber storage.
After several hours the back room looked like this.
Notice the planer and thicknesser.
I build a little mobile cart for them.
I need to put all on wheels, since the back room is small, so I need to be able to move the tools into the shop sometimes.
(I was dreaming of a flip top version, but don’t have room enough).
And the rest of the room is now also getting closer to be functional.
I call this room the machine shop.
I will end with this picture of my antique French tabernacle, this because I have promised a close up. ;-)
Perhaps my work shop is my personal tabernacle.
So today I smile, feel I am getting really close now.
Thank you all for your wonderful words on the way, they sure helped me keep the smile.
