Default Before and after

In order to make room for my new variable speed lathe and bed extension I had to carry out a major re-organisation, which entailed removing all the stored wood and putting it in the separate wood shed which in turn led me to call a friend with a big truck to take away every piece of wood for firewood that I knew I would never use. This allowed me to make a dedicated corner for turning.

That's way too clean Harry. You need to make some chips.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Harry, have you considered having an overhead power bus installed? That way you can have drop cords where you need them so there is nothing to trip over. Yes, the new steel cabinet in the corner looks very nice.

As you can see Mike, I haven't actually considered a bus as such, but I do have one hanging extension cord which I do intend to improve and add a couple more so that there will be no more trailing cords. I have fitted the quad outlet near the lathe to replace what was just a double.
