Best way to avoid Christmas chaos is to hide in the workshop. Made a quick addition to the drill rack.
Another small Christmas project: Storage for a random orbit sander plus sanding discs. Not thought fully through, as I have a few sanders and like to have at least two at hand when working.
More of this content please
Not too much birch ply content today, sorry.
I few years ago I bought 8 or 9 sorting shelf things. Hung the first 3 today and began merging my granddad's, dad's and my own collection of nuts, bolts, washers, bike bits, brass furniture hardware etc.
Almost all their stuff was stored in tobacco tins or cigar boxes. Might keep some of the stuff in their tins for nostalgias sake.
You've made decent progress! I wouldn't mind visiting when I'm in Fyn next.
Definitively keep some old tobacco boxes, they make good family keepsakes.
You're very welcome. It looks like I'm buying a house in early spring, which will give me another shop next to this one, which will be dedicated to bikes
Storage is still not done and the labelling needs to be sorted, but now it's ready for some more sorting.
I did get a few more ply wall pieces sorted:
A safety square with first aid kit, eye rinser and a bandaid dispenser (that's in the mail somewhere) and the charging piece from my old workshop.
Sooo fucking nice Jesper. It's like you been collected shit for this place for years
Thanks. It's incredibly nice to finally having a decent workshop, but I'm still running out of space...
More safety stuff:
Gravity defying ear defenders! Nice
A few thoughts about what I'm doing in the workshop atm:
While the new place is larger (and warmer) than my old garage, it's still not big enough for my needs, but as I mentioned earlier in this thread, I'm buying the house next door at some point. That will give me space for a dedicated bike workshop and free up some much needed space in this place. I'm still in the process of moving stuff out of my old place, that's 200 km and a expensive bridge crossing away. That means that every now and then I have a bunch of stuff coming into the shop that needs sorting quickly to not get too much in the way. This usually means that the big work table gets covered in a pile of stuff that then gets sorted into bins/boxes. The stuff that I have a current need for gets some sort of plywood storage solution that goes on a wall, but probably not in its final location. When the old shop is empty and I have some more storage here, the layout/work flow will be sorted and stuff will get hung in its final position.
Speaking of just tossing stuff on the wall to have it at hand, a bunch of the measuring devices went up on a piece of chipboard
And my dad's old cabinet got repurposed for finishes, chemicals, whisky and port.
My sister's old recycling bins went underneath.
Oh man that charging station! Boy oh boy you done good
Haha that cabinet with chemicals, whisky and port would NOT pass any safety standards. But it's great. Whole thing is amazing, the sort of thing I dream of, along with the skills and time to make use of it all.
Yeah we should see if we can get a group discount on flameretardent cupboards
Part of my last haul from the old shop was 4 steel cupboards, so I might move some stuff around
You're velcome to stop by my place as well.
My workshop is much less impressive, but I make a pretty good cup of coffee and the riding around my house is pretty nice also :)
Quick update to the PPE wall. Redid the holder for the hearing protection and made a quick holder for nitrile gloves.
Excellent! I wonder if its a standard box size
It's the same size as the other 10 boxes of different sizes I have, but dunno with other manufacturers
A tiny birch ply update.
