« Part 10: Next to last post before making real dust. Y Part 11 of We have moved and building dream shop series Part 12: Machines in and running. Working on positions. »

Blondie and I have almost everything unpacked and cleaned. ( she did they cleaning bless her heart). All the electric is done and machines are running. Starting out feed table tomorrow. Then miter station, workbench and cabinets.

I’ll also be working with Onida dust collection design team now that I’m sure on machine placement. Looking fwd too having them do this. My dust collection in California was decent but I’ve always dreamed of that big yellow beast in their corner. Lol.

Side notes, finishing room getting close today being finished. Waiting for exhaust fan then panel one last wall.

Welding room done, jhaving a difficult time finding g steel here in Nashville for a good price too make welding table.

Thx guys as always all comments encouraged.

If you switch open space for machines, that’s what my “shop” looks like. Good on you for being able to do this! Color me jealous.

Yes indeed, Blondie’s cleaning is to be admired!, and your workshop is total eye candy for us all!! But Ken … it’s time for you to make a mess of sawdust in that pristine space!! Of course, I’m sure you’ll be doing your own clean up from now on :)

you should put up partition walls every 18 feet or so, so you can remember how all the little people feel. :P
