I here by declare the new incarnation of the Oldwolf Workshop open for sawdust! One more good say is all it took. There are still a few smaller projects to get accomplished but at this moment in time all of the workbenches and tools, both hand tools and power tools, are set up and ready for action. Well I may be overstating one big and one more minor omission, but we'll get to that.
First as a reminder on where we were, I had the workbench side of the shop nearly done, but one the other wall of the shop I had a disaster brewing, Here's a reminder pic of the traffic wreck that was over there.
I put a couple of days of work into it and by this late afternoon I had it polished up and looking a bit more respectable.
I even managed to hang a rack for my longer clamps.
Here's a couple shots of how the whole place looks now.
Wood Shop Jr, somehow I'm not so broken up over the decision.
The other item that is going to be sitting and waiting for a while is the 1940's joiner I picked up this spring. I have a lot of work to do on that one with removing the rust and making sure the motor works. I have too much on my plate to tackle that yet until maybe this fall. Who knows, maybe even next spring.
Now I have to focus on breaking down some rough cut white oak into the necessary pieces for an upcoming "secret" project. Secret here on the blog anyhow as its intended for someone who know about this blog and reads it from time to time. I will show some pictures of the process and what I'm working on, but I won't be showing any finished product until the baby is in the hands of its future owner.
I will also continue work on the Moxon twin screw vise as a filler project while glues dry and what not with the main "secret" project.
