The wonderful wife and I are pulling up roots and moving. Not far, just a few miles away, but our new dig will be bigger and better than ever. I have lived in my fixer-upper for 9 years now and the time has come to move on.
When I moved in I had few tools and not much experience. I ended up renovating the whole house and developing a strong passion for woodworking along with more tool junk than you can shake a stick at. The garage has seen a lot of my screw ups and disasters, but with that, a lot of learning. It has been a slow organic work of progress. That and mostly a huge mess.
I started packing up right after taking these pictures and finishing off my drill press rebuild. This is why I was so interested in it being mobile. It was a little sad to start undoing all my hard work that got this shop to where it is. To offset that, the new garage has over twice the square footage of my current one. Lots of exciting posts to come in the future about new house renovations and shop setup. Until then, goodbye old friend!
