« Part 3: Next stop is to pick up 21 sheets of 5/8" sheet rock. (Photos so far) Part 4 of The New Work Shop series no next part

All thats left is some trim around the door and window and qho knows when I will get to that with projects backed up out the door. I am in talks with the owners of a chain of quilt shops and a quilting school to build a series of 4 Quilt and sewing stations “my designs” with some changes to be used and sold in there schools and online store so we’ll see what we agree on.. Heres a video on the shop and a tour its about 10 min long so feel free to fast forward past as much as you need I put it up for family in OK. and NY to see primarerly.

Well its back to the shop after a lot of traveling I hope to get these shelves done soon and start on the tile then the big job, building kitchen cabinets I have a tax id now so I can go to a supply house near me that only sells to contractors and you have to at least have a sales tax certificate to get be able to buy there at all so I am looking for some good pricing as well. Florida is strange with all the rules and license laws they have.

Looks great Bob! Nice to start with a clean slate. Now comes the never ending organizing of all the smaller components of a shop…lol The layout of the larger tools, I think, is easier than trying to get all the misc. “stuff/junk” stashed away in a manner than you can find it and get to it easily when you need it.
Have fun in that spanky new space!!

I’ve had a stash of 8/4 hard maple waiting to be transformed into a proper workbench. I keep eyeballing the Benchcrafted hardware…..that’s my hold up is weather I’m going that “high end” route or not.
Are you posting a blog of your bench build on LJ’s?

Gary I bought wood screws for my vices from Lake Eire Tools for the one I’m building I hope to get back to it tomorrow. I am not a fan of Bench Crafted or any metal screw vices for that mater. I feel that the wood screws require less turns, one revolution maybe two and your there and not spinning a wheel a half dozen times but that’s just me. I got a leg vice and a wagon vice for about five hundred from Lake Erie where Lee Neilson and Bench Craft are that much and more for one Plus I just think there cool. I did start a blog for the bench over at LJ’s but I don’t see much interest but I may start it again. I have most everything cut and ready to mill and half of the top glued up. You should look at there video instalation.

McDonald’s the name is enough to remind you of the tasty food items that they offer. There is no need to tell you that it is one of the biggest restaurant chains in the world.

Well, it is expected that the RRB has tentatively said that the Exams will be held in the month of April/ May 2018. They also said that this year the Exam may be conducted on various dates since many candidates have applied for the Examination.
