Chillin'


The website problem has been resolved, a little progress made on the cabinet and it's COLD!
Funny how a bit of frost puts you off venturing into the workshop. It's not THAT cold in there, but it's not exactly sweltering either....
Just heard that the "Maloof" chair is in the new Good Woodworking magazine. 10 pages!! Nice!
I've spent some time thinking about stackable tool cases to store the hand tools in. My current wall-mounted set-up is fine but if I need to move the tools, say to a new workshop, it will be a hassle packing them away. So some quality time has been spent in Sketchup coming up with suitable (read "capable of being picked up by one person when full") design. Watch this space ;)

Any speak-peeks of the new tool cabinet??? :-)

I'll post some pics tomorrow-some more details to work out yet.

If Exeter is still on your mind, then I should build a workshop into your car or better a van. That way you can do a bit while stuck in the traffic!

Ah, tool cabinets. Always popular with editors ;~) My suggestion fell on deaf ears with Ian D, so I put it forward for your consideration instead - tambour doors.

No, it's okay, need to thank me...

Hmm, just dawned on me you might be a bit sick of sliding doors though. D'oh.

Thanks for the idea-hadn't considered that. The sliding doors worked out fine on the cabinet so have no "sliding-fear" at the moment.
The tools cabinets are going to be a bit rough'n'ready, as opposed to Chris' Uber-Toolcase/museum piece ;)
And no, I haven't forgot to post the pics-work has been darn busy this week and, combined with a cool workshop, excuses are easy to come by.......
