I posted a look at my shop tonight and found as I sorted out pictures to find 6 appropriate views that my shop has changed over the past few months. I added dust collection to my miter saw. I moved my router table from one wall to another. I moved tools stored on the walls from one spot to another. I put some tools here to fore in the tool box on the wall. Looking at the pictures gave me some more ideas to “streamline” my small basement shop.
When I check in nightly to read posted LJ posts, many detail new tools resulting in moving existing layouts around. Adding electrical outlets: building new workbenches: evicting the car from workshop space: adding wall sheathing: re-building shelves: etc etc. It seems that woodshops are never finished.
So maybe there should be a warning on books and tools stating that if you are becoming a woodworker, be prepared to manage a maelstrom of wood, tools, plans and ideas. That seems to be what a woodshop is . . .a creative maelstrom!
