New year, new shop
Well it was a long week off, but I managed to get the new shop space finished up. I shopped short of painting the walls (I'm not that vain) but I got the walls and ceiling finished, and got all the joint compound finally out from under my fingernails. The jointer is all set up, and a test run on a piece of cherry was a rousing success. Next up, I'll need to build a torsion box assembly table, and probably build a few more cabinets and counter for a sharpening station, and maybe even add more dust collection ducting to move the bandsaw to the new area as well. Alas, I'm back in the office this week so I won't really get to really take the space for a test drive until next weekend. But after this "vacation" I don't really mind sitting at my desk for 5 days!
