I built a big table for the mitre saw, tall enough for the table saw to park under. That frees up a lot of room in the shop. I built it from lumber that came from a demolished building that used to be roof trusses. They sat on the ground for another couple of years, keeping the firewood off the ground. So they are well used. Once I got it built, I put the saw and drill press on it and I was none too fond of the way it looked.
Today, I put a couple of strips of 3/8" siding on it that was left over from doing the outside of the shop. Then I found some bits of spruce to wrap the edge, doing mitred corners and the table looks much nicer.
It's odd that one always thinks something can be done in a couple of hours and it ends up taking days. I thought today I would get the last bits done and it was 4 hours before I was happy with it. There were some compromises along the way, but the shop looks neat and tidy and organized. Finally! I am taking a bit of a rest now and will likely edit some video and get it up in the next couple of days. I will also shoot the shop tour. I have no idea of what the next project will be, but I am sure there will be one soon.
I have someone interested in buying the old mitre saw and I hope that goes through. I will use that money to buy some more insulation and get a bit more of that done. I also have to apply for the electrical permit and get that work started. I also have more video to edit on the essential oil cabinet and get that posted. I think there will be 2 more on that with the amount of footage I have to go through. So stay tuned, this journey has a long way to go yet.
Thanks for dropping by!
