Moving the Workshop

Posted by Jason Jones on

We've recently moved ourselves down to beautiful Cañon City, Colorado, and along with the Royal Gorge and all the fun touristy things to do here we have these absolutely amazing, breathtaking, views.

Of course one of the things that was super important to us was having shop space, preferably bigger and easier to access than our old one. The last shop was in the basement with a couple 90 degree turns so it was always fun trying to get lumber down there. The new shop is in our walkout, and has its own outside door. Compared to the old one, it's just heaven!

The old shop kind of grew organically over several years. We'd buy a tool here and there and then occasionally completely reorganize it to try and make it better. But it was still never quite perfect. We're not there yet on the new shop but we'd really like to plan it better from the beginning. As we get time we're going to hook us up a better dust collection system with several inlet ports for the various tools. We've got a sanding station which vents to the outside and an area just for finishing. 

In other words, we're going to try and do it right.

The first step was to get everything unboxed and into the shop itself. As you can see from the pic below, we've done that. Next is organization!!
