Re-organised shop

Mark Nowicki
For the past couple of months, whenever I had the time, I have been moving things around, mainly to break out the funk and hopefully reignite the woodworking spark.

First I replaced the filter bag on my 1HP dust pump with a HEPA canister, which made a noticeable difference in air flow. I have also shortened the piping as much as possible.

Second was to move the bench from the wall and placed it in the middle, making for easier clamping as well as allowing more daylight to reach the bench top.

The final change was today.
I took Paul Sellers' advice and raised the bench from 31" to 38", my back appreciates this most of all and an added bonus is more storage under the bench.
