It's time for projects!


How can you get any work done on the bench with all those tools lying around? :D

I like steel cabinets. Far more gooder than what I might make. ;)

I had too much empty space in the HF drawers so I indulged in some new Narex chisels. They're all getting sharpened. The top of the HF cabinet is a perfect sharpening station.

I like steel cabinets too. Maybe I am paranoid, but I have to contend with subterranean termites here in AZ. At least with steel cabinets that touch the wall and floor, I don't have to worry about the critters coming up and getting into a nice wood cabinet that I built. One of my future planned shop projects is to move things around a bit and build a tool wall to hold some of my Shopsmith accessories for easier access, but also chisels, squares, etc. to be closer to me. I intend to make a nice wood tool wall, but plan to mount it off the cinder block wall with spacers to protect it from the termites here. They really love to get into stuff in the garages here unless you keep the ground flooded with Termidor.
