« Part 11: Machines in and running. Working on positions. Part 12 of We have moved and building dream shop series no next part

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.

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 :)

Ken, all due respect (and you know I mean that, my Beloved Buddy). I’ve pretty much been ignoring this thread. I mean, I get the notifications, and everything. And I open the thread. But, I rarely actually read it, because it makes me jealous. I’m in need of making a response at this time. To wit:

I’m up for adoption. Want me?

Full disclosure: You may have to share custody with a few others, if all works as it should.

Thx for all the comments…. will be making a mess today. Mark I completely understand I was going today quit the post but a few fellow lumberjacks emailed me asking about updates. I would never brag as I worked out of small shop for 15 yes in California. Next post project I promise….. thx

Wow, I sure wish I had that much room to play! I spend most of my day in my small shop. If I had that much room I’d never come inside!

How wonderful. The room and the open spaces – all seems even bigger with the white walls and ceiling, plus great lighting. Enjoy! This is what I dream of having in retirement.
