I'm just a workbench top away from being able to open the new shop facilities
here's a brief peek inside the new digs ...
as you can see in this and the other images, the entire place received a paint job (ceiling still needs rolling, but I'll have to do that some time later). this first image shows (front-back) the wood rack where I store my bookmatched tops, top billets, 1-piece body blanks, and 'assembled' body blanks (2+ piece blanks and their figured top/back if getting one); ShopSmith multi-purpose tool which I use as a horizontal drill and vertical drill press; router table where I cut custom pickguards; mini lathe where I'll eventually be fabricating custom wooden knobs; carcas frame for the stationary workbench (sorry about the dusty lens on this image, the dust blew up just as I took the shot)
here's another view of the stationary workbench structure. it's bolted to the wall structure and will support several middle aged fats guys jumping on it
I'll be adding a 1" plywood top (glued & screwed) base followed by a 1/2" sacrifical top (screwed only) sometime this week as time permits
several of the 110v tools tucked away (left-right) helical head planer for jointing body blanks and figured tops; 14" bandsaw with 6" riser block for cutting body blanks and bookmatching figured billetts into top sets; thickness sander for detail thicknessing body and top pieces before and after glue-up; that's also one of several wood storage racks mounted overhead (the wood in this rack is for figured tops)
continuing on that same wall ... part of the thickness sander; oscillating drum sander for detailing body and template contours; dust collector with filter to suck woodchips and dust from the various tools while also removing most of the fine dust before the air disperses back into the shop; another wood storage rack overhead (the wood in this rack is for body blanks)
I still need to bring my 200v tools over to the shop, and that will happen later this month. there's no rush since my present backlog isn't requiring the use of these for several weeks to come (i.e. I have a ton of assembly work to finish before I switch back to neck and body construction activities)
as time permits I'll get a couple images snapped of the various tools in use building parts ...
all the best,
