Well I got back out in the shop again! I also bought some new toys! The stand is on casters and still needs to have drawers installed. Got tired of getting the grinder up and down from the bench. Granted it’s not gonna win any beauty contest. But it is very effective. Just built to my height. No more bent over sharpening all my tools anymore. It’s 40” tall 31.5” long and 27” wide.

Welcome back. I like your sharpening table. I’ve got one made from old cabinets. How are the fingers doing? Must be ok if you are getting back into the shop.

It’s not about winning a beauty contest, as long as it’s useful. Sometimes, the simpler the better. Glad to see you back to work in the shop so fast, it took me months and I didn’t do as “good” a job as you did on your hand.

Back and working in under a month that is impressive. I like the station. More hand tools for you in the future?

Thanks all. Fingers are doing good. Some pain, mostly when I hit them up against something. But other then that they’re stiff. Skin is even growing back already. The Doctor seems to think I am healing fast because I am part Native American Indian. He believes The Native American Indian heals faster then what is considered normal. I don’t know, He’s the Doctor not me.

I love functional shop accessories. Being able to make it the perfect height is great. Good job.

hey man! glad you are getting shop time. You have a good doctor and he is right about the healing factor it is one of those unexplained medical facts. Keep well Rodd.

Hey To the Tooth, any beer in that ‘fridge? The stand is too tall for me but I’m glad you are back. Keep it safe and build lots and lots of STUFF!

Rodd, how did you get so many photos to load up? I could only get one of my Garden House to upload. What format do you save your photos to?
