« Part 3: Drawing up a Plan Part 4 of Shop storage projects series Part 5: Dungeon Shop Remodel, Stage 3, and.... »

Well really two stages today….the main event was this afternoon. Then I went back down to do a wee bit more, as a stage 2….....didn’t quite work out. Leg was having issues towards the end. Sitting here with an ice pack on the leg, and a Norco pill in me.

Anyway…here we go….

I removed the brace till from it’s perch, and placed the electric grinder in it’s place. I needed a couple other toys to move aside….and then try to remove the plane till. Had to unload the planes, stashed them on the Boss’ washer (Shhhh!) Until I could reload them again. First were the two smaller items in the way..

Small belt sander, and the scrollsaw were now off the new location for the tills. I found out I had used that scrollsaw a bit more than I thought..

I still had the drill press to move,,carefully…

And I think it will stay right there. Swept the top of the dresser off, and installed both tills..

With the idea that the planes will see more use than the drills. That one brace, without the wood grip? It has been replaced by a better one. I also cleaned the top of the walnut tool chest off….

This was after a coat of rattle can shine was added. Decided to take a break for a while…..

After supper tonight, I wandered back down to the shop. I installed a few of the power toys into their new homes..

The little hand crank grinder can move as needed, though. I slid the tool chest out, and Igor tried to clean the floor up

But, when I went to take his picture, he jumped on the broom and flew away, leaving me holding the trash bags…

While the chest was out, I decided to empty it out. Found a backsaw down in there, and a tote..

Once those were put away. I was left with this..
Chest doesn’t weigh all that much 15-20 pounds, but it is a bit hard to carry up the stairs. So, it has been shoved back to where it was, for now.

Tomorrow is a Follow Up on this knee. I think I’ll just take the day off from the remodel. IF I can get the chest out of the way, I have that crowded corner to rearrange…..So I’d like to be able to stash a few things where the chest is sitting now. And try to find out where Igor flew off to…

Stay tuned, might be a couple days….

I’m speechless. If it weren’t for the occasional electric motor, I’d think it was a medieval dungeon.

Hence the name of my shop…The Dungeon Shop.

walnut Chest has been carried up out of the shop. My son had come home from work, so I had him carry it up stairs. Which he did without the slightest problem. Figures. So…now I can slide a few stands into the open area where the chest used to be, while I rearrange the rest of the stuff. might need another trash bag..or two..
