Two years ago, cajoled by a 12 year old grandson we moved from Wisconsin to Michigan. I had put together a pretty nice basement shop. Most projects were attached to the house, little in the way of furniture or dressy things. Moving the shop has been torture. Most of the projects here have been to make build storage, repair cabinets, change what was a duplex into a single family “home” etc. Finally the shop detail is about done. So I expect to post some details about my shop and some of the (I think unique) things I do.

I have my own way of installing Accuride drawer glides . . . not that someone else might do it the same way. I have built alot of drawers because Mary likes drawers rather than shelves. Center piece of the shop is a Sawstop. Space dictates that everything is on casters. (Mary likes casters too)

As for projects, my grand son is just finishing a book case. (why a SawStop!) I am finishing under workbench storage started in Milwaukee. Mary’s craft room has needed spaces for “stuff”. and the list goes on. Hopefully there will be “stuff” here of interest to at least one of you.

Welcome to Lumber Jocks. Nice that you are able to be near your grandson. My grands live in MN. I don’t want to give up on WI just yet. A couple more years and I’ll change my alias from Bureaucrat to Retired Bureaucrat. Maybe then, we’ll see.
Take care.
