« Part 125: Bang, bang, banging together some quick and dirty drawers. I need to get this done. Part 126 of A journey into the workshop. series Part 127: Compressed air piping system done! Whew! »

Not going to call it new years resolutions. Those always go to the wayside for me before January 2nd.

So how about my hopes, plans, and positive actions for my shop, and projects for 2022.

What do I want to be certain I get done?

#1. Finish cleaning the shop. I am making progress, but some days feels like 2 steps forward, 3 steps back.

#2. Finish the project of straightening out the curves, and massively reducing the amount of flex hose used in my dust collection system.

#3. Add a Thien Baffle to the separator ring of my HF DC along iwth the neutral vane.

#4. Install my urethane bandsaw tires. And finish building the resaw fence.

#5. Finish building the drawers for the miter saw cabinet.

#6. Upgrade the lighting from T12 flourescent to LEDs. I plan on using double ended ballast bypass bulbs not replacing the entire fixture. Doing this for a purpose. I do NOT like ANY Of the LED shop light fixtures I have seen, particularly their flush mount options. If I stick with my current fixtures, I am happy with those mounts…

#7. Build a proper queen bed frame for the guest room. The roller frame that is in there now is extremely annoying!

#8. Finish refurbing the curb find kitchen island. Get new hinges, better pulls, sand it down and restain it, urethane it, call it good…

#9. Build high mount bookshelf for home office / studio / music room. Need a place for my tab / sheet music books.

#10. Install the compressed air piping system, including moving the overhead hose reel to between the overhead door tracks.


#11. Build 2 flip top tool stands to move my bench top tools onto.

#12. I am sure my wife will add on tto this list…

So that’s my list of to do for 2022.

What’s yours?
