We have been away for a few weeks having been working on a condominium hideaway. No shop so I’ve been limited to re-mounting existing cabinets that were falling down, putting sliding shelves in the low kitchen cabinets, replacing old electrical outlets with grounding outlets. Organizing storage, including moderate tool storage etc etc.
I’ll sounl like Brian Meeks if I say that Mr. Saw Stop was happy to see me when we got back but then! After eating Thanksgiving dinner at son Bob’s I spent tonight in the shop. We have a large closet in our condo and to add an extra hang up rod and partition off my tool storage corner. So I need to build a partition. So I am “pre fabbing” a 22” by 8 ft partition that will fit in the car and can be assembled away from the shop. Tonight I got all o the frame pieces cut and rabbited for the front and back of the partition. Also cut pieces for a book, (hymnal) rack to be mounted in the condo bedroom. Dug out some maple from an old chest of drawers to make a simple TV stand with room for the DVR.
Working in ths shop is great therapy, most restful. Oh the title of this Blog? If you forget to turn on the dust collector, even the Saw Stop gets dusty. I figured it out about half way through what I did. Dumb!
Happy Thanksgiving to all.
