You are truly building a workshop to be proud of, very impressive attention to detail!
Thanks man!! I'm quite proud of things so far. I'm excited to get to the point where everything is reasonably easy and/or quick to get to, where I have the tools/accessories that go with each tool close at hand, so I can just get to work without too much set up. That day is coming, though it'll likely be after the wedding when we get a house. The nice thing there is that we will likely be staying in the apartment for a few years as the school district our daughter is going to is the best in the state. She's doing really well there, and that would be a hard thing to give up. Unless we find a house in that school district, but the neighbors are very conversative/Republican/trumpers, and we aren't fans of that. So we will see.
My assembly table has been really handy the last year or so, and I've recently upgraded some things to make it easier and more convenient. At the bottom of the table frame, I added four little straight caster wheels (two on each side), to make getting it lined up with my sawhorses easier. I made two little assemblies with wheels (four wheels on each, one with straight casters, the other with swivel casters) and a pair of handles to help move it around easier.
After wiring up my garage and walls last weekend, I was really in an electrical mood, so I decided to add power to the bottom of the assembly table, since I use it for everything anyways. I added four small single-gang boxes with a single duplex outlet each, at each of the four corners. I used the leftover 14ga extension cord from the walls to wire it up. I bought a new 25' extension cord for the main power cord, and used coat hangers to coil it all up
I posted this last week. I finally finished making the "cabinet" that the shelves would go into:
It's so nice finally having the little 14" shelf pieces not sitting on my various saws. This thing is heavy, but super solid. LOVING it so far.
Sneak peak: I bought a new black anodized guard from Gdayj for my Squier CV JM. Once it gets here, I'm gonna wire it up with my "ultimate JM" schematic, where I have a 3-way slider in both the lead and rhythm circuits, like having presets. I still need to order some new pickups for it, but that's not a big deal. Just need to decide if I'm going to order some Novaks like I've always wanted, or some Lollars since I can't seem to get ahold of Mr. Novak. It kinda worries me that he's hard to get in contact with. Still thinking about that one...
