Hey, I’m what the outsiders call a “Southern Maryland Inbred” (or S.M.I.B.) myself ! I’ve just been displaced up here around Frederick. (Or “Fred-Neck”) With the weather we’re having here in “Marilyn”, it’s hard to believe it’s only January….. I’m sure you’ll have your shop up and running before it’s time to do some crabbin’........ It’ll be nice to be “bustin’ bugs” with mallets you’ve made yourself ! (This is what most of y’all would call “cracking crabs”)

One last comment about reorganizing the pegboard. The natural inclination is to have everything hanging flat up against the wall. But if you look at some of the factory made hooks, some of them can be pretty long. Since the bench in question is 24 inches, having some of the items stick out three or four inches doesn’t hurt anything. With some hooks made out of coat hanger wire added sideways to a long hook, things like large tin snips can be hung at 90 degrees to wall. This takes up less wall space while not interfering with the main work area. Just make sure these items are placed in an area where there is no risk of bumping your head on them !
