I am moving into a new house and I hate the process. The worst parts are lack of internet access and of course, my enter shop is in boxes. I miss putting wood to blade already. But I am excited to set up the new shop. I brought all my garage cabinets from the old place. The best part is that I am going from a 1 car garage with lousy electrical to a two car, extra deep garage with outlets all over the place. There is even a 220 outlet. I may just have to rewire my table saw.

During my professional career, my wife and I moved 7 times. In the last 3 locations I had a shop. With each move, the shop got bigger and better. That’s the good part. I bad part is that I just hate moving. We are retired now and I have repeatedly said, “when I move out of this house, it will be feet first”. Hopefully, that is not for a long time.

If I could manage to locate my camera I would snap a “before” photo to compare to the after shot later. Problem is…. the camera is in a box… somewhere in the garage… under, between or in who knows what!
