The Unpack

It was not much of a start to be honest, it was only one box unpacked, but it is a start never-the-less.

The next challenge is certainly looming: just where to put everything!  Not that these are troublesome issues per say, solving them is part and parcel of getting the workshop into an ever improving functional condition.

The first box was the easiest – saving challenges for another day I suppose!  Reason it was the easiest?  Full of MagSwitch featherboards, fences and hooks.  Finding storage for them is pretty straightforward – find the nearest steel beam to where you’ll need to use the item, and lock it on.  If only all the tools were that easy!

Having plenty of floor area is not the only thing needed for a good shed – having storage is as important.  To save as much floor real estate as possible, I will be looking as much as possible to wall mounted cabinets – getting them up off the floor, and above any infeed and outfeed areas of the machines.

Something along these lines.  Especially the one with check-plate! Watch this space – it is a long journey!

  1. My sons gave me one of those (with the chequer-plate doors) and it’s Ok though not quite deep enough for some items and I need more shelves. Only real downside was the oak fell to bits after a few weeks.

    • What’s “the oak”?

      Interesting observation on the depth- thanks for the heads up

      • Dyslexic fingers for the ‘lock’ … (Why do I not proofread better?)

        • heh 🙂
