I am working on the plane till design. Based on the design I know the width and height of the Plane and Saw tills. A big step is to make room for these two shop storage systems.
I am reworking the work flow in the shop to be more hand tool friendly. This means a massive rework of the “Tool Wall”. The tool wall has been a fixture in the shop for about 10 years. It has seen several reworkings over the years, this one being the first time everything has moved.
So I extened the left side of the tool wall by 2 ft. I needed some extra space. And yesterday I removed everything from the wall !!
Then I sanded the entire wall with 80 grit. ( I did not fill all then screw holes. I think it adds character ! )
And then I painted the wall. Just used egg shell pure white on a 4 inch roller. You can see the new 2 ft. addition in this picture. It is organized the way I think I want it.
I also started working on the design and layout for the “HI – LO” hammer holder. I seem to have lots of hammers that I do use and they old system just wasted space and did not really organize them in a friendly way.
Oh yes !!! The music stopped playing !! I listen to music from my cell phone ( Pandora or my 400 cd collection ) on a small 25 year old amp on a pair of Radio shack metal speakers. Well it stopped working, so I had to dig out an alternate sound source. An old setup I had for a desktop computer. Not as good, but will work for a while.
