    Late summer cleaning

    I'm in the middle of it at the moment, but I finally broke down and shifted my newfangled bench and storage cabinet... hope to get a bit more elbow room in the shop:

    temporary home for the chopsaw, had to 'dress' some lumber so I could get things shuffled around, and reach the UTS on the other end of the shop. I still haven't reached the UTS yet, but I'm not working today, and I'm not done out there.

    Of course you know that means a new item will show up shortly requiring another round of clean-up, it seems never ending
    and as Mr Bradley would say....'Enjoy'!!!!
    The perception of perfection is perfectly clear to everyone else

    OH I know it is a never ending process, but this was something I needed to do to get better access to my workbench. I have another 'clutter' bench, but now I have good access between the bench and the tablesaw. When I was working out there earlier, I even found my Ultimate tool stand works well as an outfeed table! Now if I could just find my 'thin' pusher for ripping cutting board stock down. I've got to get the planer 'jacked up' so that I can clamp it down in the well on the UTS. RIght now, it sits almost 2" too low for good infeed/outfeed. I'll rip down some 2x stock and shim it up so that the tables are flush on the UTS wings.

    I'm planning on picking up the ridgid spindle/belt sander, but that's going to wait until next month. I splurged a bit on the house, plus we have our school tax bill due at the end of the month.

    Better the planer be too low than too high.

    Glad to see things are going well for you!
