At least he has now got somewhere to sit and contemplate what casting set to machine next :)

Of course I don't have near as many as Jo to contemplate over.

Well Don, it needed to match the other two windows  :lolb: . Took a few shots of the shop area and storage/mechanical closet today. There is still some cleaning and organizing to do but making progress. That drill press in the middle of the floor will likely get moved to where the wood band saw is. Not sure what I will do with the band saw  :headscratch:. The first two pics are the shop area, the next three are the closet, the last on shows a small organizer I added to the forwdom area.

Hello Bill,

What a beautiful shop. I am pretty sure that your closet is bigger than my shop :lolb:

You must be getting anxious to get settled in and start on some projects, enjoy.

Have a great day,
Thomas

I really am Thomas. Most of the rest I can do as things go along. I still need to move the sherline equipment from home to the shop. Dave thanks for looking in.

Wow, that really opens up once you get the injection molding machine and the riding mower and other stuff out of there!
You're going to have room for that party for sure!

Yeah, I'm a little jealous, Bill :)

Thanks Kim. I had backed the tractor outside for the pictures as it will reside in the garage of the new house eventually. But yes there is a lot of open space. ..now what to fill it with  :thinking:

If I had the space an nice work bench that could be accessed from all sides would be on the short list.

That is a good question, probably not for model engineering.
I have a chunk of particle board and a couple folding saw horses that I drag out quite often for small projects; it has also been used as my welding table for a number of years. But I recently purchased a small fab table from https://weldtables.com/
I just seem to get into projects like building and wiring a heater control box for my brothers green house, sorting stuff, working on the lawn mower, etc.

Sometimes its just nice to be able to access a project from all sides. It is just another flat surface which is a dangerous thing. :lolb:
