    Workshop upgrade

    Hi folks its been a while since my last visit. Been busy starting a new business abd have been lacking quality shed time.

    However I managed recently to get to do a little bit in the shed.

    I have been lacking good bench space since we moved to the new house and its been difficult to work due to this lack so I sorted it a week or so ago.

    Heres the result.

    The photos show you the view from the door looking in, then moving around the shop anticlockwise

    And finally back to the bench and the entrance to the workshop. Behind the door is a wall rack for my clamp collection.

    Heres how it looked at the start after we moved in. http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...ead.php?t=2924

    Other than being suspiciously clean, the reorganization looks real good, Ralph.

    You are right it is clean I knew people were going to look so did a bit of house keeping.

    And just as a note the bench tops have now all had three coats of gloss polyurethane to make em look good a slide nice

    Looking good, I know it takes time to reorganize, but, if you can make things a lot better, like it looks like you did, then the time spent, will pay dividends for a LONG time.

    Ralph, I'm in the middle of reorganizing and I hope mine turns out and good as yours. Well done. Now get the place dirty with sawdust

    That looks great Ralph. I don't know about you but when I take a pic and it looks that clean you usually don't want to see what's behind the camera. It's like Hollywood; the off-camera scene in my shop will usually destroy the illusion ;-)
