« Part 3: A Blank Canvas Part 4 of The Journey of my Shed Shop series Part 5: It's Hot.... »

Took advantage of the 3 day weekend and made some progress.

First, I went by Home Depot and picked up some sheets of plywood and laid down an extra layer of plywood flooring. This was to add some extra support and overlap gaps between existing sheets of plywood that were installed by the shed crew when they built it. The gaps were very small, think the largest was 1/16”, but it was going to bother me. Went with the with more expensive sanded sheets of plywood for two reasons, the first being that they are more pleasing to look at without all the knots, also being smoother I figured they would be easier to sweep and keep clean rather than the bumpy, rough surface of the plywood that came with the shed.

The old workbench was the first to find it’s place in the shop. I built this bench when I was 15 years old. Not the prettiest thing in the world, but has lasted 18 years so far. It was the first thing I ever built, so I’m kinda fond of the ugly thing. Next came the table saw, lathe, and scroll saw table.

Next I just started bringing things in a bit at time…

Drill press, clamps and crate full of misc. tools.

Miter saw, miter saw stand, air nailers (under the pile of blocks left over from my 6-year old) and work light.

8” bench grinder, toolbox, and a BUNCH of power tools that will need a home.

And now the fun part, all my hand tools that will need a home. Currently just gathering everything and grouping them so I can figure out how best to store them. Still more in the garage, but not too much more.
