What is next?

Ron Harper
I know that many of us were pressed into duty helping Santa. Hopefully that work is done. So, what is next up in the shop?

For me, who recently moved into a 9 ft by 17 ft workspace, it involves tweaking how I originally arranged my shop. After working in it for a few months, I have discovered a couple of things that are not workable. I hope to be able to fix it in a week. Have to do a new arrangement for clamps. ( i actually have too many) a new storage cabinet for chisels, and a rack for mallets and hammers.

Then I get to make drawbore pins, a new cutting gage, and a krenov smoother. Oh, yes I have a wife and two grown daughters who keep dropping suggested projects. Better do some of them 😎
