« Part 4: la la de da la la de da Part 5 of my new shop series Part 6: done? well at least I can function »

So I know that it has been a while sence I have written about the progress of my new shop. 29 days acording to the date on my last posting. I am still not totally functional yet but I am getting there. Last week I sold a couple of planter boxes and ran as fast as I could to the hardware store to purchace casters for my table saw. I built my saw table with a router station on the out feed side, it is approx 4 X 8 all said and done. Prior to this trip to the hardware store I was running 4 casters on my table and it really wasn’t working very well. It was bowing in the middle and very hard to move. Moving…. that is the key to my shop. I do not have a lot of room to work with so everything that I have that can be on wheels is. So now my new saw table/ router table/ work station has 6 5inch casters that will turn a full 360. Let me just say, wow! Much easier. lol I have gotten my miter station set back up and functioning again which allows me to at least cut some wood and wallow in the saw dust. Hummmm saw dust…. There is still alot of work to do but at least now I can move around with out knocking everything over. I posted a new pic on my workshop page so you all can see the progress. I am really looking forward to completing my honey do list so that way I can get out to the shop and play again. I know its only the end of may but I have to start thinking about xmass soon. I will be doing more of my hope chests this year. I already have 4 people who want to purchase one. I figure I’ll be making about a dozen. Ok thats it for now more when the progress progresses. The wooley woodsmith, or as me wifey calls me, Michael
