And so it begins-fitting out the shed

Perhaps no more than a symbolic gesture (too hot to consider doing more- day 2 of a 4 day heat wave above 40C), but still, moved the first few machines into the shed.

Because of the epoxy floor, it really does have a ‘new shed smell’.

First cab off the ranks, and it had to be the (still packaged) SawStop


followed closely behind by the Festool Kapex


The pallet jack is already proving its weight in gold. I’m using some trailer ramps to get up over the edge and through the roller door


Every tool that rolls in through those doors will continue to define the new workshop.

I even got to use the workshop tonight legitimately. Needed a couple of boards docked to length. With the Kapex already set up, it was a very satisfying thing being able to use the right tool for the job, rather than fudging it like I have been doing for the last 12 months!

  1. Hi Stu. With current weather, have you got a temp gauge for internal shed temp.? Mine with similar lining, one roller door open, two windows, and access door (all open) only got to same as outside temp today. 41 and a bit.
    Upstairs and downstairs temps in your new shed may also be worth monitoring? Not as though ya have nothing else to do!! but may be worth a comparison to/ during winter temp. variations. .etc.
    This weather may assume a point of “high” on a control temp. test. Not sure though. Infact I don’t really know.
    Just an idea Stu.

  2. Hi Stu
    The floor looks a million bucks (jealous much 🙂 ).
    I’m interested in how you went with the non-slip additive in the clear glaze coat?
    Looking forward to some increased progress in the short term.
