Learnt a lesson yesterday....don't horde wood and then move shop.
My new mission will be to use up the wood I have and then I will try to only buy wood on a per project basis.
Have been through several strategy iterations from having no wood, to having wood on hand and frankly neither worked.
Either I felt the wood was more worthy than my project and therefore purchased more for whatever I was doing or I felt I never had the right wood.
Either way I then tried stocking up with wood and now when it came to moving ....oh boy what a schlep. We nearly wiped ourselves out yesterday being impatient and moving my dolly with the wood on.
Had a flat bed trailer from U Haul with a ramp. Had offloaded the plywood I keep on one side. Then I was all for unloading the other side but this time my dear tough chick wife decided let's give it a try and push it on.
Well we got it on with a huff and a puff. Then came off loading and trust me u don't want to be in the way of a lopsided weighted wood storage dolly. It rolled down ramp and toppled over. I had made it clear to Linda to stand back and what will be will be. Should have set up a video camera because I knew what was going to happen but there comes a time when a good husband does not negotiate with the tired boss.
Boom. Wood everywhere. No bad words were said. I just asked boss to leave me in peace while I repaired dolly and put wood back in a and moved it into place.
Boy how I have regretted buying that cherry tree in the rough. Larry if u read this trust me next time I will listen attentively.
Hope I can get my jointer going at this place because I am going to make one heck of a lot of cutting boards or have a real good winter bonfire.
Must say I challenge any other lady at 55 to do what my dear wife did yesterday helping me move cast iron. Feel sorry for any potential mugger that dares to get in her face, they will need a doctor and hospital after she is one strong tough woman.
Other tip I have is make everything mobile and get rid of any cheap castors.
And put casters on your workbench.! That's something I will be doing now.
Anyhow shop is moved this week movers will move furniture and then comes sorting out the mess.
