Thumbs up Workshop Gets A Once Over By The Daughter

Our daughter (aka furniture/room/house rearranger) came out this weekend; Ken tells her "help mom get the workshop arranged better." ROFL little did he realize what he got HIMSELF into with that request!!! Half-way through, he's complaining (after the 2nd or 3rd move of the jointer) and our daughter kept throwing his words at him "You told me to help mom! Well, you're the muscles, you have to move the stuff! I don't wanna hear it!" I was cracking up. It was hilarious! It took a couple of times, but she got it to where (in her mind) that the workshop is now utilizing its' space much better now. We'll leave it (for now).

No cutting got done this weekend; rather, I got some of the lettering done on those already cut, instead. Also did some sanding on the stands for the glasses, and pt away the door screens for the season Hoping to get busy on the tablet stands and a couple other novelty items. Not to mention getting the displays designed and ready.

P.S. I didn't say it was clean... just rearranged *giggle*

Looks like she was thinking "work flow." Looks very good. Going to spend some time this week with my daughter. We have four hot leads on clients, which would generate near $90 grand for her. She is learning to close, which is the hard part for lots of people. Always good to do that with a big smile on your face.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

And to think, Rick; I haven't really gained that much since I got it. A couple of tools, a cabinet and a couple benches. I'm just more spread out (kinda like me as I get older lol) I would say almost 80% of this was in the little shed. Thankfully I had Ken to keep it optimized and working.

Everything in my shop is on wheels. The mobility helps with cleaning and/or rearranging. i have a big shop but a lot of tools. I have most bunched on one end of the shop and pull out what I need and put it back in the tool corral when finished. I would like to have a dedicated spot for everything but what I do works with the space have. When ever possible I pull some tools outside under the covered patio to work keeping the dust cleanup to a minimum. I still use dust collection even outside but it makes my cleanup easy. I just vacumn up any surface dust and use a blower to keep the machines clean and then roll them back inside.

Highly suggest putting most equipment on wheels.

My big cabinet saw is on wheels but seldom moves. Also my drill press is not on wheels because it is so top heavy already. But everything else is on wheels, bandsaw, jointer, router tables (2), planner, Nova Lathe, Jet Mini Lathe, scroll saw, drum sander, assembly table, gun cleaning bench and etc....

@gdonham1 everything is on wheels (except the jointer - need an adapter, and two tables.) Otherwise, there wouldn't have been any movement. When we had the workshop built this summer, that was the first thing we did; at least to everything we could at the time.
