Well worked my but off the last two weeks and it feels great like my new space. I have a drill press bench yet to do probably tomorrow get that done and clean up a little better. Got the food shelf done two weeks ago also got Nancy's laundry what she calls her center. made the miter stand first then I built my shelf on my side. Then got the planer stand done last week. Used my stand from my band saw to use for my little jointer. Then built my lathe stand have so I can swap lathes grizzly is hidden behind the rikon. The tool box on the table has all my pen turning supplies and tools for the lathe inside the drawers. The best thing that I made though it is small is my lathe chisel sharpening bench. Put Terry's aka visteonguy made for me a few years back. I've using the wheel chair to help out my legs they are in bad shape but I'm having so much fun. So Harry and others here are the pics. :shout:

Well Mr. Henry, I can see that you have been one busy rascal. That sure is a big improvement over your previous shop indeed. You are not going to know how to act with that much space. Just be sure you don't get saw dust all over Nancy's laundry center or you will be dead meat for sure :sarcastic:

Nice job so far and it looks like you are having a ball. I see you have the same DC as mine, Delta AP400? It is a nice little machine and does the job for me and my space.

Hey, Glenmore! I am so proud for you. Looks like you are getting things set up nicely. I will give you a few more days and then will be expecting to see some production coming out of that new shop.

I'm astounded by what you've achieved in just two weeks Glenmore, I think that the Adrenalin rush has done you far more good than all your many medications. Like all members, I wish you a long, happy and productive life in your new home and shop.

Not bad for a fresh start. Something that may interest you is an extension cord sold by HD. It is a Ridgid brand, 25' long and has taps every 8 feet. This may be ideal for plugging in all your tools, knowing you can only run one on the cord at a time.

Dan check on some plane tickets for me and the Mrs from Avoca PA to your location to see if you can afford it. I would love to tackle your shop with you. What I did with mine was to keep every tool that does the same particular job so that there isn't to much moving around. Lighting I used 4' foot shop lights I seen you have the upgraded ones better then mine. I know you are having fun with your shop if I'd come up we'd never get anything done we would playing in the shop building something. :agree:
