Funny thing about vacations, I can’t wait for the chance to sleep-in and then all the opportunities for extra shop time. But as most of my vacations go…that’s not even close to what happens.
We try to plan a family get away somewhere we all know we’ll have fun, but I can’t help but think about being in the shop when we get back.
This time around was no different. A great trip to visit family in Florida and our first ever stop at “The Waffle House” (I’ll take mine smothered and stuffed please!)
Back at home it was time to get caught up…on yard work AND MORE SLEEP!!!
But because the shop was calling, and I finally had enough hours in a row, I decided it was time to tackle a job I’d hadn’t planned on attempting anytime soon.
If you can remember my hand plane shelves that I would occasionally record episodes in front of…I decided to take advantage of the real estate underneath them and place as many of my hand tools in easy reach as possible.
I have to admit, after getting all these tools in direct reach of my bench I can’t believe I own this many. Add to that the fact I still have many more sitting in drawers and on shelves just waiting for a spot on the new wall and I’m thinking I might have a bit of tool buying problem!
