The only thing I would admit is it's possible I have more information on Medieval Furniture crammed into my head than any other person walking the planet at this time. I can't wait to finish the book and forget half of it. No, there is one workshop activity I have performed more than anyone I've ever spoken to. I am about to undergo the process again and with all the paperwork signed I cannot live in denial any longer.
I am packing up my shop and moving again.
|The first workshop I documented. (There were two before this) Circa 2008 - a basement shop in Maine. |
I had just completed this bench.
Not far. Fourteen miles across town. It's a nicer home, big enough to house both my family and my in-laws as we enter the ranks of the multi-generational home trend. We had first looked into building new,, an I was hopeful for a ground floor shop space connected to the home HVAC. As the better of our options shook out I find myself moving from one 2 car garage to another. Even trade.
Though the new shop space is already insulated with finished walls. That will be a welcome improvement come the wintertime!
|My next shop space (4th) located in a 5x9 space at the bottom of the steps leading to an upstairs duplex.|
No room for machines here. This was the launch of my hand tool odyssey.
|The 5th shop space. This time in a steel shed on my parents land. Hot in the summer cold in the winter.|
But a wonderful dedicated space I was grateful to have.
|I count this space as 5 and a half. We were living in an downtown apartment building|
and I turned half of our dining room space into a small shop. I maintained it alongside the
shop on my parents land, moving back and forth with the seasons.
|My current shop space. Version 7.0. When I moved into this space I had promised |
I was done moving shop forever, or at least a long time. except. . .
I still have other posts and builds to catch up on here, but over the next month or so I will go through the steps of breaking down a well used space and opening up and setting around a functional new space. This will include some of my workbench relocation tips that will be put to the test. The newest challenge will be moving my new bench. twelve foot long, four inch thick top and frame beneath and probably weighing in somewhere around 500- 700 lbs.
|I also anually moved things into a space in our small four season porch. |
That makes this shop space number eight.
