In reality a workshop is never finished. There are always things to modify and perfect, but that said I’m as done now as I will ever be. I built some planter boxes for emelle today and found I need to repair a belt on my table saw. But I have to cross this off or it will sit here forever. I’ve done all the major stuff I’d initially planned: cabinets, drywall, electrical, outfeed table, router insert, etc. Done. 5 years ago

Finally the weather has warmed up enough to get back out to the shop (meaning it finally got above freezing). Today I moved the cabinets a freind gave me into place. Nailed them to the wall and shimmed them so they are level. Also put the router back in the Rout-R-Lift after modifying it so it will plunge deeper. Also bought some more peg board for the wall. 6 years ago
When we moved into our new house about a year and a half ago, it was nice to have more space and another bedroom. But losing the shop I had in the old garage was hard to take. Well 18 months later and we are almost there. The electricians have brought a subpanel out to the garage. I have wired 10 new lights, 8 new outlets, and a series of switches that will allow me to remotely operate my dust collection system from anywhere in the shop. I have put in stairs to the attic space. Insulated the whole garage including the doors. Put in new door openers. Upgraded the fence on the saw, put a new blade and splitter on it as well. Installed old cabinets, reinforced the ceiling joists (21 foot 2×4’s spaced at 24 inches—Yikes!) Not quite there yet, but it willget there and I’ll keep you posted. 6 years ago
