We all dream of getting a new purpose built workshop. I finally had the opportunity.with my wife getting moved for her work. I got to leave my cramped workshop with no windows and minimum power behind, to move to a purpose built shop. There were quite a few issues with this move, first of course being the distance, 7,138 km. Logistically, if you forget it, it stays behind. Plus with a moving company, they do not move things like glue, finishes, or great piles of boards like I had. So that ...

Well, it is that time again. I am starting to pack up for another move. This shop has done me well, afforded me the space to upgrade some equipment, and has taught me much about streamlining processes for projects.
